Caves, Peach Springs, Arizona

Grand Canyon Caverns
We explored the Grand Canyon Caverns back in 2010 and found the caves to be a nice break from the desert heat. One of the neatest things these caverns offer is a rental at the bottom of the cave. For $700 hundred bucks you and another person can stay 220 plus feet underground in a cave suite. Yes it's pricy, but where else can you do something like this?

History
In 1927, a young woodcutter, Walter Peck, was on his way to play poker with his friends. Before reaching the game, he stumbled and nearly fell into a rather large, funnel-shaped hole. Since he didn't have the proper equipment to explore the hole, he continued on to the poker game. Once there he started telling the boys about a new, big hole in the middle of his trail. The next morning Walter gathered some friends. With ropes and lanterns, they went to explore his new hole. A rope was tied around the waist of a local cowboy. He was lowered into the hole. By the time his feet touched the floor of the hole, 150 feet of rope had been let out. Read More
