Colorado Springs Part 3 - Cave of the Winds

We we spelunking one morning at Cave of the Winds while in Col. Springs...Fischer LOVED it, Owen slept through it :) Here are some pictures (they don't do justice though, it was much more beautiful than looks here).

This rope ladder was one of the original entrances to this part of the cave.


I don't think this part is natural :)


Some pretty formations:


Looking down at our group:


An 8-ft-long stelactite:


Daddy and Fischer heading into a narrow part of the cave:


An original Edison light bulb that lit the cave many many years ago:


More pretty stuff:


Daddy and Fischer with the cave behind them at the exit:


This cave was at the top of a mountain (not the bottom, like would be expected)...here we are on the balcony of the store/entrance:

Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6.
