Despite the sign, all caves (and mines) are closed because of White Nose Syndrome. This is the only sign I’ve seen with an apostrophe in White’s. Copyright © 2021 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

The short steep climb was rewarded by arriving at Whites Creek Cave (the only place on either map or sign that I have seen an apostrophe in White’s). The cave, like all of Missouri’s caves and mines, is closed to protect the bats from the spread of White Nose Syndrome.

I did peer in through the railings to see if I could see anything though! I couldn’t, but by the wonders of technology (my camera and my headlamp) I was able to take a picture of the inside.
