Laurel Caverns

As a reprieve from unusual heat during a workshop I offered at Touchstone Center for Craft located in Farmington, Pa., I arranged a tour for my students inside the Laurel Caverns where it is 54 degrees all year round. The great folks at the caverns provided us with a guided tour of the cavern with plenty of opportunity to photograph the rough limestone walls slowly carved out by slightly acidic rain water leaching through cracks in the mountain. The caverns follows the terrain of the mountain sloping down 15 degrees over 46 stories and is the largest cave in Pennsylvania.
