Glenwood Caverns

Just got back from a vacation in Colorado, and this cave system was the highlight of the trip. I toured both Fairy Caves and King's Row Cave. My favorite sight was a wall formation almost exactly like Disney's Snow White...with seven little surrounding stalagmites.

King's Row is a destination in the lower part of Fairy Cave - it's all one cave. The tour takes you through two separate entrances because the connection between the upper and lower cave is through the 9 inch vertical squeeze known as the Jam Crack. Fairy Cave (now called Glenwood Caverns by the commercial interest) is Colorado's 3rd longest at over 3 miles.

It was the site of a rather fun NSS convention too. :)
