Reading our guide book, there are lots of caverns in the Shenandoah Valley area. The guide book said Luray Caverns was one of the best, so we chose to go there. This Carillon tower is in the center of the small town, just in front of the cavern entrance.
The caverns were discovered in 1878. It is not the ecologically pristine environment that Kartchner Cavern's has, but it is amazing! There are rooms with ceilings 10 stories high. There is amazing formations, lakes that are shallow, but so still they perfectly reflect the formations. There is a stalacpipe organ, that they use to make music. Weddings are sometimes held down here.
They call these the fried eggs, they are from formations that were accidently broken off during work on the cave.
