Wind Cave Room - Gypsy Road
Discovered by Jim Nepstad, Bob Kobza, and Stan Allison on November 16, 1991. Gypsy Road is a large, but windy passage, with unbelievable amounts of gypsum crusts, flowers, and crystals everywhere. Also named because Bob is Bohemian (Gypsy).

Winds caused by changes in barometric pressure are what give Wind Cave its name. These winds have been measured at the cave's walk-in entrance at over 70 mph. The winds at the natural entrance of the cave attracted the attention of Native Americans and early settlers.
