My better half and I were there this past Saturday elbowing our way past the hordes of snapshooters. While I wouldn't be hopping on a plane to visit the Caves any time soon, they are still fairly interesting to see up close. I expect they will be not around for much longer with this week's warm-up.
I shouldn't laugh (since I realize that not everyone has the same level winter mountaineering experience that we do) but I am not sure whether to be impressed or appalled at how clueless the general public is about safe walking and travel on snow/ice surfaces. (Think: Atlanta drivers in an ice storm.) Come on, we Canadians are supposed to be knowledgeable about snow and ice. ;-))
Come to think of it, I was probably one of the snapshooters you elbowed :-)
