“formed 350 million years ago”
The Caverns were created approximately 350 million years ago, during the Ordovician period. The cave was carved out by waterpower, and there is still an underground river in the cave today. This cave, like most of those in the Ozarks, is a limestone cave. There are also sandstone caves and lava caves in other regions of the earth. With beautiful cliffs above meandering rivers such as the White and Buffalo, deep blue skies contrasted with masses of green timber, and wildlife moving constantly in the background, the Ozark Mountains are one of the oldest mountain ranges on earth. Standing atop an Ozark hill, you feel like you're on solid ground. Yet, in many of the most beautiful spots, you're probably standing right on the top of a ceiling -- the ceiling of a cave room carved eons ago.
The cave had a bunch of really interesting formations in it. The cave was just incredible in itself. Look out for the waterfall inside, it's definitely a beauty! Our guide was in his mid 20's, I think. He was really enthusiastic with what he's doing and it's really nice that he is very knowledgeable of the whole place. He entertains the tourists nicely. A fun place to visit not only for adults but also for the kids.
I had a great experience here and I was amazed at the rock formations. I learned that human hands are acidic that I can kill or destroy the minerals once we've touched it. So its a hands-off place. But it was really great.
Open 7 days a week in July.... ☺
