Saw this on PBS... you all know i love caves...This is the Strataca salt mines in Hutchinson KS. We drop 650 feet into the ground and into a time capsule. Website says visit is 2+ hrs. Cost $19 which includes Train and Tram rides underground. After we will head to the final frontier... Kansas Cosmosphere for lunch in the food court, then explore the museum. Cost $17 w $5 off fr salt mines. Some are considering staying the night as its 3.5 hr drives each way. Either go down Friday night and come back Sat night, or as posted and come back Sunday. Consider that as carpools form. (For those doing all the same day...leave KC @ 6 am, arrive at mines @ 9:30, enjoy until 11:30+, drive to Cosmophere and lunch until 12:30+, enjoy Cosmo until 2:30+, drive back and at KC @ 6:00+) This is an General intenarary. More updates to come Trippers! WATCH COMMENTS FOR ADDED INFORMATION!!!
