The Adventure Continues… Masonic Cave
Sadly, the friendly folks (and their pets) who guided Huell during his visit back in 2004 are no longer around; and although the Masonic Caves are still there, they are certainly not the huge tourist attraction that other nearby caves are, like the nearby Black Chasm Cavern National Landmark or, a bit further south, California Cavern State Historic Landmark, not to mention the Mercer Caverns near Murphys. These smaller caves just outside of the town of Volcano are quite easy to miss. But this episode is a perfect example of the sort of “serendipity adventure” that makes Huell’s shows so much fun to watch. I especially love the way the cat and the dog tag along during the tour!
Huell’s off to Amador county and the town of Volcano. It was once a thriving, gold mining town in the 1850s and 1860s, but Huell has set off to discover the mysterious cave in this mountain community which served as a Masonic lodge.
Went there today! Took some photos.
