July 29th Plateau Corvette Club members enjoyed a trip to The Lost Sea Adventure in Sweetwater Tennessee,  an underground cave and lake.Their Lost Sea adventure began with a guided tour of the caverns. That involved a ¾ mile round-trip walk on wide sloping pathways. While touring the caverns and underground lake, guides told of the cavern’s exciting and colorful history. They also explained the fascinating geological development of the immense cavern rooms and rare formations. At the bottom of the cave they took a boat ride on The Lost Sea, America’s Largest Underground Lake.  After the tour they stopped for lunch at Z’s Fish House in Loudon Tennessee.

Thanks to Roger and Kathy J. for a great trip.
