Have you ever experienced Howe Caverns? In the latest 'Married With Microphones' episode, Tad and I celebrated our anniversary by taking a lantern tour 156 feet below ground to explore the six million year old cave.

A tour guide leads you through the twists and turns of the cavern that Lester Howe discovered at the turn of the 19th century, explaining the rock formations and the number one rule: don't touch! Oils from our skin destroy the natural rock formations.

We experienced the mystique of the River Styx, The Sentinels, Titan’s Temple and The Giant Formation. There's even a boat ride to explore 'The Lake of Venus.'

For the return trek, the lights are turned off so you can find your way through the cave as Howe did in 1842; with only a lantern. It's so dark you can't even see your hand in front of your face.
