The water drips down and is so full of minerals that it eventually (over hundreds) of years, creates all these amazing formations. Of course, the water dripped on us and I had these horrific images of eventually becoming a rock woman, covered in minerals and unable to move. Wouldn't that be creepy? Yes. It would be, you don't even need to answer, I've answered for you.
After the caves we went to see the Mennonites at the Farmer's Market and I found a bag of just Lucky Charm marshmallows. It's a dream come true! There are several theories about this...either the Mennonites are crazy about these marshmallows so they package them to sell in their "grocery store" or they are forbidden to eat the marshmallows, so they pick them out and package them. OR my personal favorite, a punishment for bad little children is to pick out the marshmallows while sitting in a small barn on a wooden chair at a wooden table. The greater the offense the longer the shift.
