I stayed at Wigwam Village #2 built in 1937. The price is so cheap and it could use a little updating but it's worth it. I've concluded that whimsy is something we lack nowadays. Also it's great staying in a motel/hotel and not sharing walls with anyone.
The River Styx emerges from underground. Mammoth Cave is known for it's cool geological features.
My favorite part of Mammoth Cave (okay ANY vacation usually) was the hiking. Everywhere else the park was crowded. When I started off on a hiking trail the crowd disappeared. My favorite was the hike down to Cedar Sinks where absolutely everything was in bloom. It was like a hidden magical valley.
This is one of those tourist trap antique/junk stores. I absolutely love places like this. Lots of little places like this around Mammoth Cave.
Coming soon: Bourbon Trail vacation pictures. I wanted to put the whole vacation in one post but that was a ridiculous amount of photos. So you'll just have to stay tuned.
