Who said anything about adventures needing to stay ABOVE ground! In California, there is a hidden wonder called Lake Shasta Caverns which can be found underneath the earth - just waiting to be explored!
This national natural landmark is a geologic adventure for the entire family. Guided yours can take you around the caverns, and the lake, in all of their glory. Keep an eye out for the local animals that you might spot along the way - like the mountain lions, black bears, and even the grand bald eagles!
Want to know something really cool about the Lake Shasta Caverns? They actually originated around 250 MILLION years ago, back when the earth's crust was folding. Ever wonder how the Klamath Mountains were created? That's how!
The actual caverns were part of life for the local Wintu Indians. Then, in the 1870s, a small town and fish hatchery were build on the river, and an employee officially found these incredible formations.
Lucky he did - otherwise your family day out might be very different!
When you are in the caverns, there is so much to see - you will see how incredible Mother Nature can really be! From tiny cave corals, to magnificent cave drapery, and gravity defying helicities - make sure you look all around you as you make your way through!
So why not enjoy a family day out with a difference, and head underground for your next adventure. You'll never believe what you will find there!
