Exciting Cave Adventure Apr 04, 2009
Colossal Cave is in the Colossal Cave Mountain Park which is believed to have ben home to ancient Hohokam Indians. I believe it used to be something to see, but now there is little left of it, it looks more like someone stole much of what was to be there. Now there is still an attractive portion of the natural formations: the stalactites, stalagmites and the giant columns. It has almost 39 miles of cave, but I did not even do a mile. If you have the adventurous spirit, I believe there is much this Cave offers.Officially, Colossal Cave was discovered by Soloman Lick in 1879. While searching for stray cows on the vast ranch, he accidentally came upon its narrow opening. It is this entrance that has been enlarged within a modern setting that overlooks the panoramic views of La Posta Quemada Ranch into over 2,000 acres of the mountain park

Now many would perhaps be disappointed, epecially if you have visited places like the bat caves in New Mexico.
