ABOUT THE CAVE:
On the tour you will get to see 3 caves areas. The caves are connected by man made tunnels and are fun to walk through! There are stairs on some, ducking in other areas, that make it a fun adventure! The cave was discovered by a man named Martin Hansen. He saw cougar footprints on the ground and followed the prints into the cave! That was one brave man! He was up in the area chopping wood! Once again..he is one brave man!
Over time the caves were lost and found again and again. In 1922 the site was maintained by the U.S Forest Service and in 1933 the National Park Service took over management. The cave is full of limestone in very cool formations!
We had the coolest tour guide who was super fun to listen to and told us some fun stories about the cave, diffrent people that rediscovered it, etc. She even sang us a song she made up about a camel in the lime stone 😉
