Caves have always been fascinating to me.
Between all of the unique formations along with the adventure of exploring them and potentially getting lost…it’s just sick!
When I was traveling across the East Coast of the United States, my buddy Will and I had taken a little road trip from the State of Pennsylvania down to Florida.
What can I say…I like road trips!
Along the way we made quite a few stops including the delicious Hershey’s Chocolate World along with our capital Washington D.C. As we were driving down the interstate, one place that Will recommended we swing through was Virginia’s Skyline Caverns (a place he grew up visiting as a child). Although I’d never heard of the place, we decided it was a must see spot so we swung on by!
Take a look through the photo essay below at the spectacular structures that these caves naturally formed…it’s just phenomenal!
Caving in the Skyline Caverns…
It’s simply amazing at what Masterpiece nature can create.
The shape of the cave was formed by rushing water thousands of years ago.
The light showed displayed was breathtaking!
Can you see a turtle in disguise?
Although the entrance was small, the cave itself grew immensely!

Can you tell what this looks like?
Believe it or not, the bottom part is a reflection!
A Mirror Image of itself.
These formations are protected by the State!
Netting helped prevent further damage to the crystals.
A bit blurry, but this is the start stage before fully “mature”.
A look at the crystals in full form…magnificent!
