About this title

Synopsis:

Colorado Caves details the discovery, exploration, history, scientific study, surveying, commercial development, conservation, and photography of the state's unique collection of caves. And for those inspired to venture underground, listings of caves open for public tours are provided. Enter a world where few people dare to go.

From the Inside Flap:

Though Colorado is well known throughout the world for its spectacular mountains, the subterranean domain beneath its lofty peaks has often gone unheralded - until now. Colorado Caves celebrates these awe-inspiring geological wonders, many of them witnessed only by a select few. Through their informative text and sublime photography, two longtime Colorado cavers unlock the secrets that dwell within these dark chambers while fostering a deep respect for the earth's fragile environment.

The book's engaging narrative details the discovery, exploration, history, scientific study, surveying, commercial development, conservation, and photography of these ancient, mysterious realms. For those inspired to visit Colorado's caves, listings of public tours highlight the state's prime caving destinations.

Full-color photographs of numerous caves and their fascinating formations - dripping soda straws, rare beaded helictites, and rippling "cave bacon," to name a few - entertain the eye and educate the mind. Images of pristine underground streams, lakes, cliffs, and canyons eerily mirror the surface landscape above. Historic photographs offer further insight into Colorado's rich caving legacy.

Enter a lightless universe where few people dare to go. Learn about its hidden treasures. Embark upon your own journey into Colorado Caves.
