Work or Play?

This is where Adam and I work.War Eagle Cavern.The pic above is of the creek that comes out of the cave By this time of year it shoud be dry, but we have had so much rain this year that we still have water running.We had rain all weekend and I'm not sure it even hit 80 today.

We love the jobs we have.Getting to be outside or in a cave all day is great.Adam get to be in the cave more than me ;( We talk to people from all over the world and have meet some great folks.One of the fun things I get to do is play in the dirt Gem stone panning.Our vistors can buy bags of dirt in the giftshop and take it outside ang pan for real gem stone and I get to help.We do a lot of school kids in the spring and I help them with their panning. They all want my job now.

Vicki, what a neat place to work! Is this cave open year round? Sure sounds better than working at a desk in an office. Although, as hot and humid as it can be in Arkansas (and Kansas), I don't know that I'd want to be outside when it's 95 in the shade with 80% humidity.

Hello JoJo,
The cave is open mid March till the end of Oct. and weekends in Nov.I am one of the lucky people,heat does not bother me.The cave is 56-58 year round.
