|Our loaded mountain bicycles at the corner of Where and Am I?|
We drove up on Friday, camping at Florida Caverns that night. In the morning we pedaled out into the country and open farmland. I remember it was cool weather, but not cold. The clouds were few and bicycling on our mountain bikes was easy. Walt didn't own a touring bike, so I left mine at home and we rode the mountain bikes instead.
In the afternoon, we reached the bottom of a large hill where we could see the campsites to the left in Three Rivers State Park. However, we had to ride uphill to get to the entrance, then coast back downhill to pick a site by the lake. The bathrooms were clean and the hot showers were welcome.

The next day was cool and overcast, and after barreling down the hill exiting the park, we rode along more back roads and beside farmland until we got back to Florida Caverns. After a shower we enjoyed the excellent tour of the cave, delighted to be just a few feet underground in Florida. I highly recommend the Florida Caverns tour with its interesting geology.
