Taking a Break at the Cave of the Mounds

Last Saturday I returned to the studio to record vocals and acoustic guitar for “Temptation.” Little by little I’m getting closer to finishing my album ūüėČ

As part of my full-time job, I traveled to the Cave of the Mounds on Sunday and took a little break from my writing and recording.

The Cave of the Mounds is one of those things that my home state, Wisconsin, is famous for, but I feel a lot of people don’t know we have.

The Cave of the Mounds is extremely beautiful, and the staff there makes visitors have an educational as well as relaxing experience.

I enjoyed the trip to the Cave of the Mounds so much, that I wanted to share photos with you all.

It was an extremely warm September day, and the strong sun and greenery everywhere made the experience just amazing!

The first part of my visit was ¬†experiencing this neat program for students called PaleoTALES. A staff member teaches your group about fossils, and afterward, your group gets to “discover” fossils.

The process for “discovering” fossils was super cute! My students loved it!

You go to the “mining section” and “discover” your fossils.

After you “discover” fossils, a Cave of the Mounds staff member will talk to your group about the fossils that you collected. You get to take those fossils home!

After PaleoTALES, we had a one-hour Cave Tour. Here are some photos from the tour.

It was breathtaking in there!

Hopefully, if you haven’t seen the Cave of the Mounds yet, you will visit Blue Mounds, Wisconsin to do so. It is truly an incredible experience!

This weekend, there’s no traveling for me. I look forward to working on writing the rest of ¬†“Missin’ You”¬†and returning to the studio to record the electric guitar and drums for¬†“Beautiful Agony”.
