Barbara Traynor had developed a series of adventures as her second career. For years she wanted to travel but couldn’t during her career. Now in retirement, she has volunteered at a series of fascinating historical and nature sites. She generally pays her own travel but room and board are covered at the location.
This time she is working as a guide at Russell Cave in Alabama. The indigenous peoples used the cave during the winter months for shelter while hunting and gathering. For the next few months, she will be describing the origins of the cave, the process of excavation, the impact on the surrounding Alabama communities, and the impact on herself as she discovers this treasure nestled into the hills.
