Celebrate The Harvest Moon With Your Full Moon at Howe Caverns
When I walked into work today, I looked up and saw the Full Moon and said to myself, "It's going to be one of those days." My sister-in-law was an emergency room nurse and she told me that she would see the weirdest things at the hospital when there was a Full Moon.
The Full Moon gets a bad rap but Howe Caverns on I-88 off Exit 22 is going to try to change that (a little) with "Naked in a Cave." The first year was such a success that they are bringing it back and it's almost sold out.
The discovery of Howe Caverns is a fascinating story. Lester Howe noticed in the summer that his cows would always gather at one spot so he investigated and found a cool breeze coming from a hole in the Earth.
He and a friend found a cave where the temperature is always 52 degrees. That was in 1842 and all of these years later, it is still a popular summer destination. One of the great things about Howe Caverns is that you don't need training or special equipment to go caving or spelunking.
Their motto is "Keeping Adventure and Exploration Alive" and on September 14th, they'll take the adventure to a new level as they celebrate the Harvest Moon with your Full Moon.
Adults can tour the caves by lantern with little else...literally, because you can explore the caves in the buff. No phones or cameras will be allowed and footwear and reservations will be required.
This year's event will once again celebrate "body positivity" because natural is positive. I'm positive that I wouldn't be taking the "Leisurely Naked Stroll" but a fast walk. Shoes and reservations are required.
It also includes several "clothing" and "clothing-optional" activities, along with the stroll through the caverns. The ticket price will get you a souvenir robe that you get to keep. Go here for more details and get ready to celebrate the Harvest Moon with your Full Moon.
