Cavers from CaveSim, Southern Colorado Mountain Grotto, and Catamount Institute gathered Sunday to provide special cave exploration tours at Cave of the Winds. Highlights included vertical (SRT) demonstrations, hands-on cave survey work, bat surveys, and speleogenesis classes. Everyone did a great job today and yesterday; special thanks to SoCoMoGro members Floyd, Patricia, Dan, LP, Mike, Donna, and Jonny. Dave had a great time teaching speleology and speleogenesis (in the pictures below, Dave gets to play with acid).
