Fossils and Caves
Our second day we ventured to Florissant National Fossil Beds. It was one of the places my boyfriend really wanted to visit. I was really glad we ended up going. When you visit this park you are able to walk around trails that have massive petrified redwood trunks. There are also small fossils including insects and sea life. The trails also have wonderful views of the mountains and you can even visit a historic homestead on the site. I really liked seeing that. What an amazing way to live. These families were surround by the vast landscape and sometimes extremely harsh environment so incredible.
Cave of the Winds
The tour was very organized. We were never over crowded and we got to get tons of pictures. It was really cool to see how the original discoverers found this place. A pair of teens crawled through a hole and wandered through small tunnels, climbed steep walls and even had to climb a ladder in the dark for over 20 feet. At one point the guide shut the lights and had us hide al light. It was beyond dark, I have no idea how these guys explored with just a candle or lantern. I really admire their courage and want for exploration.
