One thought on “The Places

  1. Petrogylphs are cool…Warsaw caves are even cooler! Don’t forget flashlights/petzels; long sleeve shirts and good shoes. It is cold when you get deeper into the caves, and everyone will need a good pair of running shoes…DO NOT wear flipflops….you will slip and fall and hurt yourself…trust me, it is not pretty!! Super awesome though! Have fun.
