Ohio Caverns

Concealed beneath the rolling farmland and wooded countryside of Champaign County, Ohio, the caverns were formed thousands of years ago when an underground river cut through ancient limestone and created vast rooms and passageways that later filled with countless crystal stalactites, stalagmites and other amazing formations. 

Today, these once-hidden caves are one of Ohio's top tourist attractions. The caverns remain a steady 54 degrees year-round, regardless of the surface temperature. The humidity is always above 90 percent, and the air inside the caverns is cleaner than the air above ground — filtered by the water that formed the caves and still drips today. 

The caverns are the largest in the state, with over 2 miles of surveyed passageways ranging in depth from 30 feet to the deepest point of 103 feet. Special tours take you into the "historic" part of the cave — the portion first discovered and opened decades ago. 


Ninety-five percent of the cavern's formations are still active and growing. The largest and most famous formation in the Ohio Caverns is the Crystal King, a pure white wonder that is one of the largest and most perfectly formed stalactites in any cave, anywhere. Nearly five feet long, and weighing an estimated 400 pounds; it drips once every seven to eight minutes. 


In addition to being known for their wide variety of colors, from blue to orange to bright white and deep, reddish-black, the Ohio Caverns contain a brilliant array of formations and features — fascinating rock formations, ranging from wavy ribbons of luminous white stone to upside-down forests of tiny straws that twist, turn and curl upon themselves. 

There are remarkable "dual formations," combinations of iron-oxide and calcium crystals that are quite rare, unseen in most caves but fairly plentiful in the Ohio Caverns. There is "Fantasyland," a large, open chamber that brims with stalactites and stalagmites. 

There is the "Palace of the Gods" and the "Big Room," which comprise a half-acre, open chamber packed with a breathtaking array of crystal formations that defy the imagination in complexity and delicacy of design.

10 Ways To Keep Your Home and Soul Refreshed

I have found over the years, that having a clean, simple, refreshing home offers many benefits.... 

We can welcoming guests into our home without feeling embarrassed by a messy house or a sink full of dirty dishes. It gives my family a place to relax, to be ourselves. But most importantly, having a clean home is refreshing to my soul. I love my home and the peace and comfort it provides.

If you find yourself in the midst of a home full of clutter, and you're not sure where to begin... try these ten simple things....

 1. Fresh flowers on my table are a must. I buy a small bouquet about every 3 weeks during the winter to keep on the table. In the Spring and Summer, I pick flowers from my garden. It is my ray of happiness and is refreshing to my soul! It makes me smile every time I stop to smell them as I walk by....
(I am blessed to have a florist shop that gives me a discount if I pick out and arrange the bouquets at home myself, so I can purchase floral stems very cheap. But, if you can't afford a florist, even Walmart, Marsh, Aldi, and many other stores have cheap flowers.... take them home cut the ends, arrange them and you have fresh flowers.... it is very worthwhile, even if on a tight budget.)


2. Keep your dishes washed and the counters and table clean -the only thing setting on our table is a vase of flowers and a salt and pepper shaker. We do not use our table as a landing zone for stuff. (I keep my kitchen aid mixer, my utensil holder, canisters and our vitamin turn table on our counter at all times They all have a place and I still have lots of open counter space to use without them being in my way.)


3. Fold the throws and add a few pillows on your sofa.... it makes it inviting.


4. Keep your decor simple. Simple things that you appreciate and love, go a long way in decorating. Don't go overboard, clutter and nick-knacks will drag you down.

5. Make your bed every day! I'd also like to add... keep your bedroom for your enjoyment.... Kids are not allowed to play in our bedroom. Things are not placed in our room for storage or to deal with later.

6. Light some candles or use candle melts. A lovely smelling home makes for a refreshing home.

7. Keep the TV off and play some music. I personally love Sirius XM radio as there are no commercials. And you can change up the channel depending what mood you are in. My favorites are: Willies Rhode House (classic country), Enlighten (Gospel), Love (soft/light rock), The Blend, The Coffee House, and The Message. At Christmas, Holly is our favorite channel! We have found the kids play happier with music and I love to sing along..... music is great for everyone!

8. Tie back your curtains so you can get natural light into the house. Open your blinds every morning.

9. Pick up often. I have three kids, so a few times a day (some days it seems like more than a few times) have everyone pick up toys, and straighten the house. It makes a big difference.
Some of the things we pick up/straighten most often through out the day is: Putting books/movies away.  Folding throws and placing pillows on the sofa. Taking cups to the kitchen. Putting shoes/coats away. Sorting the mail/school papers. Putting away toys, crayons and coloring books.

10. Choose Joy! It's amazing how much a good, thankful, happy attitude can make a huge difference in your day.
