Visiting A Vast Void, aka: Colossal Cave


This past weekend Sarah was in charge of our destiny. She found some excellent places to visit. One of them is a natural cavern about 30 minutes south of Tucson. It's name, seen above, is fitting. It is big, but I might have reserved "colossal" for one of those cathedral size caves you see in National Geographic. It's been used by many people over the years, from ancient Hohokam Indians to excited bank robbers using it for a hide-out back in the 1880's.
The railings were installed in the 1930's during the "New Deal" by the CCC.
Sadly, many of the stalactites and stalagmites were broken off and taken as souvenirs by early visitors to the cave.
DEEP! but no where near as scary as caving in the Berks with Trev!

You think there are any bodies in the bottom of the cave? Maybe it was used by Arizonian mobsters
