Trip: On 2/21/2000, Marc Ohms led Rene Rogers, Matt Truitt, and Nick Myers to Browns Canyon in the Historic Section where they discovered button popcorn.
Trip Report: We entered the cave after dinner at 6 pm and headed in along the Fairgrounds route to Brown's Canyon where we left the trail and headed north up Brown's Canyon. At TT7 we surveyed 260 feet of pretty easy going passage. We found some button popcorn, the first that I know of in Wind Cave.
