Glenwood Caverns and Historic Fairy Caves, Glenwood Springs, Colorado USA

Welcome to a great discovery.  Located a few miles outside of Glenwood Springs, The Glenwood Caverns are an excellent caving adventure.   These caves are new and still mostly undiscovered.  With 3 miles already known, it is quite a prospect for new cavers.

Stalactites are looking beautiful here.

The caves have several long walk through caverns as well as many long tight crawls, and all fide with great views. A couple of passes in the caves are no bigger than 16"X18" and tight enough to make even the thinnest squeeze.

A myriad of great views and caving.

The caverns were formed from river and oceanic water erosion.  The hot sulphur springs that has land marked Glenwood Springs was a great contributor its' dazzling formations.
