MORGAN CAVE

I visited and explored Morgan Cave, which is located north of Pyatt. It is a large cave but what is so special about it is the formation of a very large, ripe pumpkin. This picture is one I took while Dan Markle, my son-in-law, Eulice Markle, his father, and I were looking the formation over. They had been in the cave a number of times and had taken me to see it. There is one sad note to this cave, there are a lot of people going into this cave and disfiguring it. I have been told that the pumpkin formation looks very badly now.
