Take her for an alabaster themed vacation

If you live in Oklahoma, there is a perfect destination for an alabaster themed vacation. Four and a half miles south of Freedom, Oklahoma, is the Alabaster Caverns State Park. A 200-acre state park that is home to the world’s largest natural gypsum cave that is open to the public. Gypsum is the type of alabaster that is most prolific in this spot, and colors include pink, white, and the very rare color black. There are in fact only three veins of black alabaster that have been found in the world. This one in Oklahoma, as well as one in Italy and one in China.

As well as enjoying a guided tour of the caves, you and your wife will also be able to enjoy wild caving, camping, hiking, and other recreational activities such as volleyball and horseshoe pits.

As well as all the human visitors there are also five different species of bat that have made the caves their home. The caverns are used as a daytime shelter, and also as a place for non-migrating bats to hibernate during the winter. One type of bat, called the Mexican free-tailed bat makes the journey to the Alabaster Caverns in the spring to have their young. And in the fall, they fly back to Mexico.
