|We walked down a path that had lots of rock formations. Many of these become slanted after an earthquake, but these were still all fairly level and in a good horizontal design.|
Spellbound only takes up to 12 people at a time to visit the cave, and we liked that a lot. The cave is on private property and you walk a path to get to the cave.
|A little up and down, some pretty terrain.|
|Down near the cave we crossed a bit of a creek.|
It was enjoyable having a bit of a walk. We stopped on a little creek bank and saw eels.
|It's an ugly-looking creature, I think.|
|The glow worms send down strands of mucous and that's what they use for catching their pretty ... bugs.|
We weren’t to take photos for the most part, and I understand as we don’t want to destroy their habitat or worry them. There were some points that we could, but photos weren’t good ones as it was way too dark. They sent us some we could use. Of course, with not having access to my email for some reason, I didn’t get them off. So, I can’t use them for this until maybe I edit it later. For now, I’ll just use a stock one from some site.
|We came out of the cave after seeing the little glow worms, and were headed to our next adventure.|
|We walked past more rocks and trees, and it was a great feeling to walk through this country and see what we might not have otherwise.|
|It wasn't a long walk, but enough to stretch our legs a bit.|
|We entered the second cave of the day.|
|A koa was a large bird, that reminded me of an emu.|
|There were some nice formations in this cave, and are different than ones I've seen in other caves.|
|I really enjoy walking through caves. Each is different, and has a variety of rock making it an interesting excursion.|
|I sure wouldn't want to get lost in any of these.|
|In between caves, our guide had served us tea and cookies. It was a nice interlude, in our little walks. This was quite enjoyable, and Spellbound did a great job.|
|We did see a sign for something called the Tramping Track. All along the fence line there were shoes, boots and slippers of all kinds, shapes and colors. There were mostly one each, but sometimes a pair.|
|Woo hoo. Another suspension bridge.|
|The walk into the bridge was cool and very nice.|
|Another gorgeous site to see. The walls of the gorge were probably once the sides of a cave. Eventually, it is thought, the roof became unstable and collapsed into a gorge. The bridge portion is all that remains.|
|Cow. Not a happy one as it was giving me the stink-eye.|
