Two weeks ago, my lovely bride, son and nephew Stephen drove down the first 40 miles of the Skyline Drive National Park to the town of Luray VA, and the Luray Caverns. We have a great time walking the mile and a quarter 90+ feet underground. The formations are impressive, immense and infinitely variable, depending on your vantage point. I shot over 300 images of the cave interior - see them as a source for outerspace, innerspace and creepy haunted cave images. The cavern folks also have a fantastic auto museum with a bunch of old Packards, Hupp Mobiles, Mercedes, Rolls Royce, and a slew of obscure names that have been filed in the history books. I loved the old French towncars, Bugatti and Delahaye (sp?)
