Hall of Giants

These three massive speleothems are the largest in the cave.

These giantst began as small deposits on the cavern floor. Gradual accumulation of calcite from dripping water caused them to grow in height and girth.

Giant Dome was once a stalagmite like the Twin Domes. having grown high enough to touch the ceiling, it has become a "column."
