Discovered by Paul Burger and Evan Anderson. Paul wanted to keep with the "Western Fringe" theme. He thought it was crazy that they actually needed a rope to enter an area in Wind Cave.

Natural Entrance of Wind Cave

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.
