10 Pictures Of Montana’s Famous Lewis And Clark Caverns
Just outside of Bozeman, you will find the Lewis and Clark Caverns. A wise man suggested I make my way out there to see them. Let me tell you, what a SITE. Not only was the drive there beautiful, but the whole experience once I arrived was one you have to see.
I had a wonderful tour guide named Cort. Cort is a woman who knows her facts. Constantly asking if anyone had any questions, making jokes, and making history incredibly fun. She does the tour three times a day and never once made it seem like this was her job. You could tell she truly enjoys giving the tours daily.
Once inside the cave, after a 3/4 mile hike up the mountain, I was in complete awe. The caves are around 50 degrees making the hot hike feel like a breeze.
Keeping quiet as possible when entering the cave, you could see momma bats with their babies. Holding them close to her, the cool temps and dark entrance make it ideal for the bats.
I don't necessarily love bats, so I was excited to get inside. It was peaceful and a very cool site. Halfway through you, really see all the beauty of the formations and history. Tourists were constantly saying out loud, "that's so cool" and "that's so pretty".
Walking thru the caverns takes around 2 hours. The perfect amount of time to understand and see the history of this beautiful cave. If you have not been to the Lewis and Clark Caverns, it is definitely something you should add to your list. You won't regret it.
