Wind Cave Room - Frostline
Dave Schnute, Herb Conn, and Jan Conn discovered the Frostline on August 22, 1964. Spectacular examples of frostwork can be seen in this area. All the frostwork seems to have developed below a line which can clearly be seen in the rooms at either end, hence the name. The Conn's were hoping this frostwork would lead to a lot more cave.

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.
