Middle Cave Lake
It is hard to tell from this picture, or really even from the trail, but Middle Cave Lake is over 100 feet long and reaches levels of approximately 5-feet deep in the springtime. In the summer Middle Cave Lake is pumped down to a level of 3 feet so that tours can move through without getting too wet. Sometimes stalactites and other formations still drip cold water on to visitors, these drips are known as "cave kisses" and are said to bring good luck! Notice the cave formations that point down from the ceiling above Middle Cave Lake. Most of them are stalactites. (Remember stalactites hold on "tite" to the ceiling as opposed to stalagmites which "mite" reach the ceiling some day.)
