Caving with My Students

The ice “caves” are actually pikes peak granite boulders that have filled in a valley outside of Monument, Colorado.

The normally rough and sharp boulders are actually water polished and smooth. In the winter any water passing through turns into ice as does the stream that flows at the bottom.

You never know whether the passage will be wide open or very tight and what kind of icey surprises will be around the next corner.

Here are the motivated and “cool” students and staff who joined me on the caving experience!

This is what it looks like from the top of the snow coverered boulders. Look carefully and you may find an entrance into the hidden world below.
