Today we left Glacier and drove about 5 hours to the Lewis and Clark Caverns. We arrived at our campsite around 3:30 pm. Located in a very dry desert area of Montana, it was hot! Over 30 degrees Celsius. We unhooked the trailer, climbed back in the air conditioned truck and headed for somewhere cool -- the caverns. It seemed like a good plan ... but before we got to go underground, we had to walk up a very steep hill (a 500 ft gain) for nearly a half hour in the very hot sun. The tour through the caverns was incredible and deliciously cool! We’ve been through the caves twice before and they are still a thrill. The caves are filled with stalactites and stalagmites and many other wonders that our guide told us about, and I unfortunately cannot remember. The tour takes about one and a half hours weaving through a number of caves for about a mile underground. There are many places where you have to watch your head as the ceiling can be very low. There’s even a place you have sit and slide through. And, then there are the hugh caverns that rise high above --
