This post went live originally on August 28, 2012. I thought it’d be a good one to re-post for my Cave Exploration Week.

Our Mountain Family went to the middle of nowhere Nevada for a little camp out. Great Basin National Park is very remote but has some impressive parts to it. My favorite was a tour of Lehman caves, an underground adventure with stalactites, stalagmites and even cave bacon. Big E was a little reluctant in the cave and little g was a little vocal. Maybe she liked to hear her echo but she loved to baby talk, especially when the tour guide was talking.

After the cave we camped at Wheeler Campground which is high up, 11000 feet to be exact. The evening rain showers scared us a bit since we forgot or rain fly but luckily we used our Noah’s tarp that we had packed as a beach sun shade (you’ll see why in my next post).
