If you’ve always meant to go see this Arizona landmark, what better way than this? Tours of the Caverns  are impressive:

These caverns are “live” meaning water still percolates in so that formations continue to grow. 2 different tours are available, $23 each - make tour reservations online:  We will  be able to tour the great room this time.
