B-CCC Field Trip: Private Tour of Luray Caverns - March 1, 2009

B-CCC Field Trip:  Private Tour of Luray Caverns on Sunday, March 1st

    How would you like to spend two hours in Luray Caverns, and be the only people there?  Can we do it?  Yes, we can!  The Bowie-Crofton Camera Club has been offered an opportunity to have a private tour of the famous Luray Caverns, in Luray, Virginia.   We can spend up to two hours there, take as many photographs as we want, use tripods, and the only other people in the cave will the the guide and other employees of the caverns.  No crowds, no rushing from room to room.  Just two splendid hours to make photographic magic.  

    Luray Caverns is located just west of Shenandoah National Park, near the town of Luray, Virginia.  In order to have this private tour, we must be there and ready to enter the cave at 8:30 a.m.   You can get up early and drive if you'd like (roughly about 2 hours and 15 minutes from Bowie), or if you prefer, you can drive to the area on Saturday, enjoy the scenery and local flavor, and stay overnight near the caverns.   Several hotels are nearby, as well as camping, and maybe even a chance to stay in a rental cabin.   More details about lodging will be worked out as the date gets closer.  As usual, after our tour we will gather at a local eatery for a friendly and enjoyable lunch.  Admission price to the caverns for the tour is $21.00 per person.
