We are so honored that the US Forest Service invited us back to this event for the second year in a row.  We had an amazing crew, including Rick, Gaylene, June, Dave G., and Chris C.  We worked with several hundred visitors as they enjoyed the mobile cave system, our vertical caving tower, squeezebox, and lots of other free, educational activities.
