As part of Sarah's spring break we visited our neighbors in Monroe County for some spelunking and some camping. We brought Sarah to visit the Lost Sea when she was three, but she had no memories of it. She really enjoyed it this time.
These are anthodites, or cave flowers. They are rather rare. The white growth shows that these are still being formed.
Our last visit was in 2007, in the midst of a drought, and the Lost Sea lake was so low that the boat dock was on the cavern floor. The lake is back up to normal level now, but I could not get a picture of it.
