Since we are called the Spiritual Spelunkers, which means we like to drop into dark caves and shine our light, then it’s time for us to actually do what we say and GO Spelunking in a a local cave! It’s Margarets Fulford Cave and it looks amazing! There is also a campground outside of Vail in Eagle county. Plus it is listed as the “3rd Top Hidden Cave to Explore in Colorado” in 303 Magazine and was suggested by one of our group.
The date to go spelunking is on Saturday, August 10, so you will have time to return to Boulder for service on Sunday if you choose. We are all leaving for Fulford Campground (Vail, Eagle County) on Friday by 5:00 pm, depending on carpooling and everyone’s schedules. We can set up camp when we arrive and spend the night and then head into the cave while it’s cool on Saturday morning in small groups, according to everyone’s activity level. We will be spending the day in the cave, plus there are hot springs, and we can have a really great evening together as well. Bring your drums, s’mores, cook stoves and lots of food and items to share. Bring your tents, sleeping bags, ice chests – and let’s have a party!
You are welcome to camp out both Friday and Saturday nights if you’d like, but we will be meeting at the entrance of the cave on Saturday, August 10 to drop in together!
The Spelunkers will also be meeting at Unity of Boulder on Sunday July 7th & 21. At the following meeting on August 3rd at 12:15 pm, we will be discussing these plans to go camping and caving!! Join us to meet others interested and make plans for our trip, get a ride and get ready to drop into the cave.
More details will follow, but you will need clothes to cover you completely, hiking shoes, water, helmet, head lamp and at least one other light source.
There are numerous resources online shared below. Please RSVP to me if you are planning to attend so that we can coordinate our spelunkingyness!
Everyone needs to be prepared when they arrive with all the essentials needed for a day of exploration in this hidden cave.
Here is the entrance where we plan to meet:
