Kartchner Caverns State Park
Kartchner Caverns State Park is home to one of the great natural wonders of the American west; there is no known record of the huge living cave being seen before the 1970s and the pristine conditions within have been carefully preserved. A remarkable feature of this cave is that it's a 'wet' or 'living' cave; the calcite formations are still growing and display a stunning variety of multicoloured cave formations. Tours of the caves are available, however there is a lot of walking involved and they are unfortunately not handicapped accessible. Tours take between 90 minutes and two hours.
