Today's tour highlight is the Domes and Dripstones Tour. This two hour tour begins by descending down 280 stairs into a dramatic series of vertical shafts. Then walking a 3/4 mile trail up and down hills and stairs through large trunk passages and a short journey through some dripstone formations.

Tickets are required to enter Mammoth Cave. Reservations are not required, but are strongly recommended. Cave tours frequently sell out.

It would have been awesome to know what they were talking about what resources they had when they were designing the tours for the public back at the beginning of all of this and how it's changed.

This week the park conducted a conservation field camp for some local middle school students. The camp was able to study the forest, caves and aquatic animals. Today they got to spend time learning about fire safety. This photo shows them with the Park City Fire Chief, Ronnie Stinson.
On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress replaced the British symbols of the Grand Union flag with a new design featuring 13 white stars in a circle on a field of blue and 13 red and white stripes – one for each state. The number of stars increased as the new states entered the Union, but the number of stripes stopped at 15 and was later returned to 13.

In June 1886 Bernard Cigrand made his first public proposal for the annual observance of the birth of the flag when he wrote an article titled “The Fourteenth of June” in the old Chicago Argus newspaper. Cigrand’s effort to ensure national observance of Flag Day finally came when President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation calling for a nationwide observance of the event on June 14, 1916. However, Flag Day did not become official until August 1949, when President Harry Truman signed the legislation and proclaimed June 14 as Flag Day.

Just a short walk from the visitor center, one can explore the Heritage Trail to a gorgeous overlook of the Green River valley. 

Mammoth Cave not only protects the world’s longest cave but also a portion of the Green River and its lush rolling hills. Take time to enjoy both the surface and what’s below while you visit.
