20080911 Skyline drive

20080911 Skyline drive

Its gray and a little rain falls down. We eat microwave heated sausage on white bread with our honey mustard.
We start the drive to the national park and pay $15 entry fee.
The Views are blocked by the rain clouds and in the afternoon we can barely see the road unfortunately.
We decide to take a detour and visit the Caves. Asking about AAA gives us a 10% discount on the $19 entry fee.
We get a guided tour of ote than 1 hour and walk a lot. It is indeed a beautiful cave wit astonishing views. A lot of pictures were taken. A tripod would have been useful, but I managed with a monopod, vibration reduction and creating very steady positions.
After that we decided not to continue over the skyline drive, due to the Bad weather, but to drive 2-3 hours over the interstate. We got new hotel coupons and Travel Lodge still had very Nice rooms for just $45. The best of the deal? Denny's was just arround the corner, so we went there for a traditional dinner. All stuffed, and after watching some presidential tv shows, Ike hurricane news and noting down everything in the journal again, we went to bed.
Tomorrow we are going to check out the historical war battles fought on US soil. Hope it will stay dry, dispite that they forcasted thunder storms and rain again.
