... ground about 750 feet by the time you get to the bottom! Although the path was pretty steep, it was really neat to see all of the rock formations on our way down to the main attraction (but still, this area was still pretty amazing too!). Words cannot do this place justice; you'll have to look at the pictures below! Anyways, we took about 45 minutes to walk down the Natural Entrance to make it to the Big Room. The Big Room is the largest single cave chamber by volume in North ...

... the park on

On this leg of the trip, we knocked two national parks off the list; I learned the area is flush with oil wells, the workers that go with it and lots and lots of big dusty trucks; and we truly traveled off the beaten path and through the woods we went! We are having a ball!

Until next time.......

... secret from each of them until they turned 15 at which time he would take them into the cave and make them promise to keep a secret.

All that is the backstory. The Kartchner Caverns are run with state of the art technology and conservation. There are no self-guided tours, no camera’s, purses, fanny packs, backpacks, food, water, gum or flashlights are allowed. They do two different tours a few times a day with about 20 people in tow on each tour. ...
