Exploring the Caverns at Limrock Blowing Cave

August 8, 2013

When Kevin and I were at school in Auburn, we had two awesome friends, Melanie and Walker. In fact, Melanie plays a big role in how Kevin and I got together. She’d drag me to Auburn baseball games (in which I had no interest in anything other than the hot dogs) and somehow we’d always […]

Its quiet location on the […]
