at the Natural Entrance, heh? <(*H*)>
P.S. Superintendent Thomas Boles (Supt 1927-1945) remembered walking though
the caverns 5000 times. I remember making it through 5001 times (6/71-1/72 & 1/86-2/2005) . <(*O*)> Not really. But Algernon, I did walk out frequently (with T.K. and Janet Brittan particularly and separately; CCGMA chief and CAVE Education specialist) Janet used to get so miffed when I introduced her to visitors we encountered "as my wife." One of us two thought that was funny. The visitors, for their part, seemed to appreciate their sheer good luck of running in a husband and wife ranger team. Janet, a good sport, never turned me in to the NPS policia. I enjoyed working with Janet and TK and the others of the CAVE familia who worked hard to serve the visitors and protect the resources. Yes, I did. ********
