Belize is a paradise for travelers who want a walk on the wild side. Because the areas being explored take many hours to reach, explorers now sometimes camp in the cave during expeditions of as long as four days.

      Returning east from California indriving a panel truck the Conns describe as "the world's first RV," they decided to check into climbing challenges at Devil's Tower. History[ edit ] Frank and Albert Michaud, two local prospectors, discovered the cave inwhen they felt cold air blowing out of a small hole in a canyon. Although they largely retired from caving by the early s, exploration has continued unabated. The Black Hills have had lots of problems with pine beetles, as well as the typical fires. Most modern-day visitors tour that part of the cave.
