Ton 80 Room Discovery
Trip: On 7/14/2001, Carl Bern led Christa Schneider, Kirk Digby, and Amy Bern to the Mule Creek Junction area in the North Section, where they discovered the Ton 80 Room.
Trip Report: We returned to our FQ survey to the three unpromising leads we left on our last trip to the area. The second lead went into a large room 90 feet by 40 feet!! We named it the Ton 80, which is the highest score a person can get in darts. We then surveyed into a 40-foot deep canyon. We left lots of leads and surveyed 450 feet.

Fire is an important factor in protecting the prairie. Historically, fires burned across the prairie every 4 to 7 years. Fires burn the small trees that would otherwise march across the prairie and turn the grasslands to forest.
