Around Springfield, Saint Louis
Not far from St. Louis,in Springfield another interesting place to see are :
Fantastic Caverns- America's Ride-Through Cave - is a family owned business. It was discovered in 1862 by a farmer - or more precisely, by his dog, who crawled through an entrance. It wasn't until five years later that the first exploration took place: 12 women from Springfield, answering a newspaper ad seeking explorers, ventured into the cave. Their names remain on a cave wall today.
Because the beauty of Fantastic Caverns is vulnerable, the Cave is toured in jeep-drawn trams. Since you ride all of the way through, you experience the magnitude, the stillness, and the splendor of Fantastic Caverns while preserving its natural features.
This is a picture taken inside this beautiful cave.
Fantastic Caverns are located in a Forest.If you have time enough can walk along the forest,it is the perfect place for birdwatching and also to see other wildlife in the area.
This is a picture taken just around the cave,in the forest and also you can see a small river on it.
