We began our trip with a visit to Karchner Caverns, went to Bisbee for the underground mine tour (Queen mine), and ended our weekend get-away with a trip to the Coronado cave. This was a unique opportunity to go without a guide and go at your own pace. If we were to go again, I certainly would take a much stronger flashlight to peer into the 2 tunnels that come off the main rooms. We were not brave enough to venture into those 2 tunnels but did speak to the ranger at the info center who said that one is a dead end and the other just sort of circles around around a little, nothing great.
Descent into the cave opening requires some rock climbing. Main room is certainly worth the trip. No bats, rodents, snakes, nada, not even a bug to be seen. It's almost moonscape-like in its surface of fine, silty dust. Could see particles in the air and wondered if maybe a paper face mask might have been a good idea to include before going in.
The formations hanging down from the overhead "roof" inside are remarkable. Very little signs of grafitti (thank goodness) and no litter, even though this cave's entrance/exit is unmonitored.
So very quiet and dark, although not as dark as either Karchner (when the lights are off) or Queen mine.
Would recommend that locals make a mini-trip out of this area by lodging at a B&B in historic Bisbee and hitting the local caverns and caves and mines.
