We owe thanks to our readers Brenda and Karin for gifting us two passes to this spectacular place. I was at first skeptical of a “desert museum” that was supposed to be one of Tucson’s premiere attractions, but that skepticism was wildly misplaced. The place is more of a zoo than a museum, and it kicks ass.
We had a relatively crappy tour guide, but this show cave speaks for itself. While Ayo has been to Carlsbad Caverns, I had never before been to a show cave and apparently this is one of the best ones to see. I loved the massive rooms with their naturally elegant formations coming from all directions. Worth the money.
This one is going to get its own post. Amazing.
