KAT'S VIEW

In Lincoln Cavern one room was called Pagoda Avenue. Why? Because one of the formations looks like a Chinese pagoda. My favorite formation is cave bacon. It looks like a giant strip of bacon. There was also a wising well. It looks about three inches deep, but it's three feet deep. A really cool thing is a beaded wall with formations on it that look like little beads.

In Whisper Rocks there was an interesting fossil. It looked like a seashell. There were things called bulbous stalactites that looked like eyeballs. There was an interesting thing called an upside down riverbed. There was also a cave organ. It makes musical notes when you hit it.
