This precious geological wonder is found in southern Arizona, about 50 miles southeast of our home in Tucson. It has become a world-renowned tourist attraction and a model for cave development and preservation.
In November 1999, the State Parks Department opened the first portion of the cave, the Rotundaand Throne Roomcomplex. In November 2003, the Big Room was opened to the public.
I made the photographs shown here on November 9, 2003, in the Big Roomon a special (expensive) preview tour that Abby and I participated in where limited photography was permitted.
