SUNDAY SHOW & TELL

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!

"Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel...the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood."

- Susan B. Anthony

This week on Sunday Show & Tell, we start with a virtual forest walk. Spend your evening on a stroll though some magical and soothing locales from around the world.

Next, take a trip underground to Mega Cavern, a spelunking mountain bikers ultimate paradise right outside of Louisville, KY. Formerly a crushed stone mine, this 17-mile long, 320,000 square foot venue is known simply as THE MINE.

Finally, in the all senses of the word, is the burial pod that allows you to become the tree of your choosing. Imagine replacing cemeteries with spiritual forests where each tree physically represents a person. An interesting idea...what do you think?
