Timpanogos Cave

Today Andrew had the great idea of going on a hike up to the Timpanogos Cave. It was about a 1.5 mile hike to the cave entrance and the actual cave tour lasted about 45 minutes. It was a beautiful day and when we got there we found out that today was the opening day of the season! We learned all about calcite, helictites, stalactites and stalagmites (I admit that I had to look the terms up).
