we spend a couple hours climbing through the caverns,Some were big enough to drive through and other were just dark hallways.Someone forgot the flashlight in the truck so we only had the camera flash to guide us.Next time we will go deeper.But i have a few pics from the inside to share still.W got 136 pics in total so i just grabbed a few.

And now for the whole reason i went there.In the picture i found on the interweb it described an old coat from who knows how fukn long ago hanging outside one of the 20 or so entrances.This coat is still there and i think that is just swell.It is petrofied and i shit you not it is the coolest part of the day IMO.Most places you go stuff is destroyed but for the coat to be there blows me away.

I want to go back, right now with a flashlight!!! We were in the one where the jacket is and in the dark, i snapped a picture and told the kids that there was something floating around in the picture, by the time i turned around - the kids were gone running for daylight - it was gooder!!! Hey, i did not know they could run that fast.

That's awesome! Will have to make a roadtrip to the OK this summer to check some mines out. Didn't get a chance to do much exploring last year, going to make up for it this summer!
