Many people think the beauty of nature stops on the surface when in reality, some of the most beautiful parts of the world can be found underground. Underground caverns in Oklahoma prove just that, and there's one in particular that will really blow you away with how amazing it is. Why go hiking above ground, when the chances of running into crystals underground are much, much higher?\nAlabaster Caverns State Park is located in Freedom, Oklahoma, and is open to the public seven days a week.\nYou can stop by from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on any day, with guided tours beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m.\nThe cavern tours include guided interpretation on a well-lit path through one of the largest natural gypsum caves in the entire world.\nGypsum, for those who don't know, is a mineral found in crystals and rocks, and the fact that the cave has as much as it does and is open to the public is rare.\nIn fact, it's the only gypsum show cave in the entire United States.\nView this post on Instagram Una más⚒❤️ A post shared by Bianca Zuleta Pantoja (@biancazuleta) on Oct 27, 2018 at 10:49am PDT\nWild caving, or spelunking, is offered here as well. There are four caves at Alabaster that are maintained especially for this, and range in length from 550 to 1,600 feet.\nYou'll definitely want to bring the right gear for something like this! Wild caving is wild, after all.\nView this post on Instagram Who wants to go spelunking?

Look at the GIANT frog... as we walked, dozens jumped in the water and croaked in a way that sounded like a cat meowing. #travelOK A post shared by Tara Blume (@alberta_blume) on Mar 18, 2020 at 7:31pm PDT\nAlabaster Caverns State Park\nPrice: 💸\nAddress: 217036 OK-50A, Freedom, OK\nWhy You Need To Go: Before, during, and after your exploration into this magical cave you'll be amazed by everything surrounding you in nature.\nWebsite\n\n\nWe strongly advise that before you go swimming or visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures.
