Caving Narratives

Caving narratives are short summaries of caving trips into Wind Cave.
Most describe exploration trips, but some deal with significant finds or
locations, science projects in the cave, or even trips where photography
is the main goal of the trip.

These trips are organized by the zone in the cave where the caving
activity takes place and date. The zones are: Historic, Colorado Grotto,
the Lakes and Half-Mile Hall Zones (which includes the Club Room Area),
North Zone, Silent Expressway and Southern Comfort Zones. Clicking
on the link will take you to the zones listed. The section at the end of the
list are the significant finds or locations that led to new discoveries or a
better understanding of the cave. Many of these involve several trips
to an area.
