A stalagtite (it's just a formation that is still stuck to the top)This was a formation that used to be on the top of the cave but because it was so top heavy it fell and that happened about 3,000 years ago.

We Can Be Spelunkers For Just One Day
Hope everyone had a great weekend! We had an awesome but exhausting weekend starting with an impromtu trip to Kentucky to do some spelunking, or cave exploration! (Chris said the word spelunking a thousand times on Saturday!) We went to Diamond Caverns Cave in Kentucky and it was interesting and fun to be underground and looking at all nature's own creations. This cave had, supposedly (because I didn't count) over 300 steps and was 1/4 mile each way. There were some pretty deep and steep steps and a bit scary when you're carrying a 25 pound, squirmy toddler!
