Ragtime The Musical

Ephrata Performing Arts Center | Ephrata, false 17522 event website

APRIL 25 – MAY 11
Based on the famous 1975 novel by E.L. Doctorow, Ragtime is an epic musical about America entering a new century. With its glorious score, Ragtime encapsulates the dream and the reality of an America still striving to define itself, seen through three very different perspectives. Mother is living with her typical white upper-class family in New Rochelle. Coalhouse Walker Jr. is an avant-garde musician living with his girlfriend in Harlem. And Tateh is a Jewish immigrant traveling with his daughter from Latvia to Ellis Island to the Lower East Side tenements. Despite their diverse backgrounds, all three will find their lives inextricably tied together by fate and happenstance.

Spelunk in Cold Cave

Wind / Cold Cave

Bucket, Cave
website | map it | Ridge Drive, Pequea, Pennsylvania,

Wind Cave is called Cold Cave because it's nearly freezing in there at all seasons.

It is one of the largest tectonic (created by moving rocks fracturing, not erosion) caves in the eastern United States. It is found in Pequea, Pennsylvania, about a 30 minute drive from Lancaster, in the Susquehanna valley.

To get there, follow 324 South from Lancaster. You will run into a T where the road ends when it hits the river. Take a left, onto Ridge Drive, before long on your right there will be a gated-off road entrance and several gravel parking spaces between the road and a guard-rail. Park here and follow the gated road about a hundred yards until you see a small path leading off to the left. Take this path, and keep going. It seems to wind on endlessly, but just keep going. You will come to a piling of rocks, and in this piling is a large entrance, with a sign posted by the York Grotto about taking care of the cave.
