Lucas Cave


From time to time we visit Jenolan Caves in the Blue Mountains. There is something very fascinating and beautiful in these caves. And when one considers that it takes millions of years for the cave to develop as we see them today it deserves even more “wow” factor.

On our last visit we went to a very popular Lucas Cave. It has a few more steps then most caves in the Jenolan Caves but the little effort is well worth it. I invite you to visit my Lucas Cave gallery.

Osselle Grotto, Besancon, France (Besançon)


This very unplanned visit to the Osselle Grotto near Besancon in France was one of the most rewarding parts of our journey. The cave system is quite large spans many kilometers and although it has been known now for many years is still not fully explored. The grotto apparently contains bones from over 3000 bears, which must have lived there over the time. The colors and formations within the caves are fantastic.

The tour there takes over an hour and if you plan to visit make sure you remember the cave system maintains constant 11C, so dress appropriately.
The owners of the grotto also have an amazing mineral exhibit, which they open to the public just before the cave tour.
