Crystal Cave

Our last stop for the day in Sequoia National Park was Crystal Cave. I’ve been to Natural Bridge Caverns in San Antonio and Carlsbad Caverns, but neither caves had the water element to the extent Crystal Cave did. This cave is located in the southern end of Sequoia National Park. Again, it far exceeded my expectations. Though not nearly as large as Carlsbad, the water created a really interesting, unique environment.

The front of the cave has this spooky, iconic entrance.

Again, the amount of water in this cave is what is so impressive.

Walking down to the cave, we passed this pretty awesome waterfall too.
