Okay, in this last part of the Cave of the Winds series, we're going into the different formations found in the cave.
This is one of my favorite formations. They call it "Cave Bacon." Formally, it is a curtain formation of flowstone. The iron and calcium that are prevalent in Cave of the Winds give it the red and white coloring.
A formation affectionately called "The Popcorn Stand."
This one is called Romeo and Juliet, because due to a shift, they will "never be together." You gotta love the sense of humor at Cave of the Winds. Our guide was great.
This is the longest stalactite in the cave, over 8 feet long!
