Mammoth Cave National Park ride

Friday morning we’re heading out on a ride to visit the longest cave in the world, Mammoth Cave, in Mammoth Cave National Park in South Central Kentucky.  The cave is 365 miles long and was discovered in 1859.  I don’t think we’ll be exploring very much of those 365 miles, but it’ll be interesting I’m sure.

Our route from St. Louis will take us through Mount Vernon IL, Evansville IN, Owensboro KY, Bowling Green KY, Paducah KY, Metropolis IL,and  Cape Girardeau MO before heading back up I-55 to St. Louis on Sunday. Total mileage about 700.
