June 21, Wednesday.

12 members and one guest attending

Our day started with a great lunch at Grapevine Farms in Cobleskill, a charming and gift shop. ...wonderful soup , salads, and sandwiches were enjoyed by all.

Next stop was Howe Caverns. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, sharing the history of the cave and its evolution . 156 feet down via elevator to the Vestibule of the caves...52 degrees Fahrenheit year round.

We walked along brick pathways to see amazing stalactites, stalagmites and flowstone in this growing cave. Visited the largest room, Titans Temple, Grottoes, the Bridal Alter...where 2 of our group have been before ..��.and even the Bronze room...where they took a nice group photo . ( attached )... We had a short boat ride and wandered the serpentine passage of the Winding Way.

Our tour ended with a visit to the cave candy store and gift shop.

The Traditional tour brought back memories for many of us...a step back in could say..but Howe Caverns offer other interesting tours ...lantern and flashlight tours, adventure tours and mining.
