Photos of the Christmas light tour of Rickwood Caverns

This year, Sweetums and I went on a Christmas light tour of Rickwood Caverns in Rickwood State Park in Warrior, Alabama. The Christmas tours were available from Dec. 1-23. We took Sweetums’ youngest, Groover, on December 22 and we loved it. The caverns were decorated with lights and there were several elves, a Grinch, Cindy Lou Who and Mr. and Mrs. Claus inside.

Here is a description of the cave from AlaPark: “What makes Rickwood Caverns State Park unique is the massive cave that contains 260-million-year-old formations that were created by water and reveal evidence that the cave was carved from an ocean bed. If you’re looking to cool off from the sweltering summer temperatures or warm up during those cold winter months, the underground wonder maintains a constant 58-62 degree temperature year round as you travel 175 feet beneath the earth.  Visit us year round to experience the wonder of Rickwood Caverns Cave Tours.”

For information, call 205-647-9692 or visit AlaPark.com.  I hope you enjoy our photos.
