This weekend, my sister and I are going to this secret cave that we know of within the greater Los Angeles area. It's a fairly spacious, one room sand cave with a "cavernous" entry. Near the middle of the cave there is a hole in the "ceiling" that is exposed to the open air, allowing you to have a fire in the cave - a "smoke hole" if you will. (And yes, we absolutely will be having s'mores..) But I'm not going to tell you any more about it though, because then it wouldn't be a secret, now would it?
However, I'm not totally heartless, which is why I've decided to let you guys in on a little list of some pretty legit cave hotels around the world. They vary in their funky factors but this first one is pure perfection:
Can you say cool? Um, yes you can because this hotel apparently gets down to 35 degrees. So, needless to say, you'll definitely be wanting to bring a coat. (TOTAL sidenote: Click here to read an amusing story about coats and hashtags -> #coats)
This hotel has one room and one room only and is located in old silver mine. The bedroom is 509 feet below ground and is replete with winding galleries, water-ﬁlled caverns, and full-on lakes.
Definitely has that homey feeling going on.. The question is: Is it maybe too home-grown? I'm undecided. They do have a waterfall shower, Jacuzzi, TV and views of all of the Four Corners states... I can't say I have that at my home...

I would also be quite content to stay here.. Just sayin'.
Anyway, I really hope your weekends are just splendid! I will be back to resume posting on Monday, provided I don't get eaten by some wilderness animal or get mauled to death by a mountain lion. #fingerscrossed
