Of course, dark is dark, and some things just came out a bit blurred and spooky. Practice, practice, practice.
In the meantime, I did enjoy the walk and the history. I've always had a love of natural history. My first favorite book was The Golden Book of Natural History. Couldn't get enough of all those pictures of nature-things...and for years my very favorite present (which I often requested and got for birthdays) was just an art pad. My goal was to draw every animal ever created. Unfortunately I never quite achieved that goal, but I did give it a good try throughout my childhood.
Peering down into Hades...
Drip, drip, drip.
Onondaga is an Iroquois Indian word meaning 'People of the Mountain' or 'Spirit of the Mountain' or 'of the hills'...the people who named the cave around 1910 just liked the name, despite the lack of Iroquois in the area, lol. I suppose
it is apt...essentially a Native American term for 'hillbilly!'
