Great little cave, and apparently the only one in SW Virginia. When we went there was only us and another couple so it was very low-key but, kind of nice since it felt like we were on a personal tour. It was fall and there were bats on the cave wall that almost looked like stuffed animals because they were hibernating and ‘frozen’ onto the wall.
The formations were very unique. There was one shaped like a hokie and a wedding party. Their most famous formation is their ‘Wedding Bell’ which according to our tour guide, numerous weddings have been preformed underneath. While waiting for the tour to start there is a great homey shop filled with mostly antiques. But there is also an entire section dedicated to rocks and minerals which if you are a nerd like me, you will go crazy for as well. Great adventure for the day.
Blacksburg has a skate park…. who knew? Well I certainly didnt. It is right behind the Caboose park that I posted about earlier. Having never been on a skateboard successfully in my life, my opinion of this park is probably not helpful. But it looked good to me! Plenty of parking and quite a few types of skating options. Plus there were skaters on it when we went so that has got to be a good sign. There was also a nice little shaded area for in between skates. Right behind the high school. Again could have never guessed that Blacksburg had one until I went on their town site. Skate on.
