faithfully by the prehistoric ocean is the only way in or out. Many of the caverns in this
area were formed largely during the last Ice Age about 38,000-14,000 years ago. “For
thousands of years mineral laden water has been precipitating on the walls, ceiling, and
floor of the caverns, leaving behind great deposits of golden calcite. When these deposits
hang from the ceiling like icicles, they are called stalactites. When they build up from the
floor, they are called stalagmites. And when you see calcite dripping down over the walls
or covering the rocks, that is called flowstone. ” – You will have a wonderful time with
all the views mentioned! (Note: Due to the cold weather and frozen road since November,
Secret Caverns may be closed on some departure date) From there we will continue on to
