The Lansing Journal journeys: Crystal Onyx Cave


submitted by Karen Kleine

Karen Kleine, owner of Lansing’s Minuteman Press (17930 Torrence Avenue), spent the Fourth of July weekend in Kentucky, where she discovered Crystal Onyx Cave and shared her Lansing Journal with Hal, one of the locals. Crystal Onyx Cave is a family-run tourist attraction, owned by Scott and Sara Sendtko. “He was so awesome,” said Karen about Scott. Scott and Sarah completely renovated the cave when they purchased it in 2010, installing new handrails and gravel paths, and serving as a tour guides along with other family members.

“It was the best part of driving to the Smoky Mountains…seeing the stalagmites and the stalactite geckos and crickets in the cave,” said Karen.
