Inhaltsangabe: The Cave of the Winds is one of the American West's most historic caverns, having been shown continuously to the public since 1881. With nearly two miles of known passageways, the cave is exquisitely decorated with breathtaking stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone and rare beaded helictites. Visitors today tour through much of the system following winding solutional passages leading deep into Colorado's Temple Mountain. Overlooking rugged Williams Canyon and the resort community of Manitou Springs, the Cave of the Winds is one of the highest commercial caves in the United States with an elevation of 7,000 feet above sea level.
This book tells the story of the Cave of the Winds, from the initial 19th century explorations by the young Pickett boys and George Snider to modern-day discoveries by cavers with the Williams Canyon Project of the National Speleological Society. It is a story of two former competitive caves joined together through a 1929 excavation into a majestic single system that extends through a mountain. As an 1888 cave advertisement proclaimed, "They are without a rival for beauty, grandeur, dryness and ease of access combined."
Without Rival: The Wonderful Cave of the Winds is the story of one of the American West's most historic commercially-developed cave attractions. Located high on the rim of scenic Williams Canyon north of the resort community of Manitou Springs, the Cave of the Winds has welcomed visitors since 1881.
This book provides information about the cave and its various tour routes, its rich history, and other caves in Williams Canyon, including two formerly developed commercial caves. Richly illustrated with color and black-and-white images, including several rare historic images, Without Rival is a book all visitors to the Cave of the Winds should have in their collection.
