Earlier in the week I shared my family’s trip to Cathedral Caverns, one of the best known caverns in Alabama. What I didn’t tell you was that in addition to enjoying the cave tour, I was also pleasantly surprised to find a pressed penny machine on the property. I’m not sure why I was surprised, other than the fact that this time I was actually armed with pennies and quarters—something that doesn’t normally happen.
I pressed a set of four pennies.
One pictures the State Park sign that you see as you enter the park…
Brave the Cave depicts a flying bat since Cathedral Caverns was once known as The Bat Cave.
The final two pennies each represent an extraordinary feature of the cave, Goliath, which claims to hold a world record for the largest stalagmite in the world.
And the Frozen Waterfall which is said to be the largest flow stone wall.
I created a Cathedral Caverns charm bracelet by adding them all to a coppertone bracelet with some natural carnelian beads that reminded me of the colors we saw in the cave.
This bracelet and more are available to purchase at Wear the Adventure.
