Presentation: The History and Exploration of the Chiricahua Crystal Cave by Robert Zimmerman
March 26, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$7.50
The Chiricahua Mountains is a spectacular natural wonderland that eventually became Chiricahua National Monument, a place of balanced rocks and awe-inspiring pinnacles. Hidden in those same mountains is another spectacular natural wonder, Crystal Cave, a place where you feel you are traveling through the inside of a geode, surrounded by giant quartz crystals. Four years ago, cavers began a project to survey and map Crystal Cave. Robert Zimmerman is the project’s leader and cartographer. He’ll tell us the history of the cave, including some surprising facts the research has uncovered, with some amazing pictures from inside the cave. $7.50 fee includes admission to tour the Park.
