Shenandoah Caverns

 Ana Maddock- Shenandoah Caverns Rainbow Lake
Once Shenandoah Valley's best kept secret, the Shenandoah Caverns were discovered by two young boys and their dog, in 1979. They were hunting rabbits, when they saw air coming up through a hole in the ground. The two boys climbed down with nothing but rope and some candles, and stumbled upon one of the most magical places in the world. The Caverns opened their doors in 1922, boasting seventeen rooms each varying in crystalline formation styles. Popular favourites include the "Bacon" formations, Capitol Dome, Grotto of the Gods, Diamond Cascades, and the Rainbow Lake- which made my jaw drop in awe. I spent a good time looking through the postcards, but couldn't find one to capture all of its beauty.
