Olentangy Indian Caverns

I really didn't know what to expect when our friends asked us to go with them to Olentangy Indian Caverns.

But it was a beautiful day and we had a coupon so we went.

When we bought our tickets the lady said, "Be Careful."  I was thinking..."Be careful of WHAT?"

But it turned out to be these really deep dark, cold, wet caverns.  I think I had cavern confused with cave.

PK2 and I were a little nervous on all the steps.  But we got acclimated and it turned out to be really fascinating.

There is evidence that the Wyandotte Indians used these caverns as a haven from the weather and from their enemies, the Delaware Indians. One of the large rooms contains "Council Rock", used by the Wyandotte's for tribal ceremonies.

Of course, the best part of any of these little field trips, is hanging out with our buddies:
