Wind Cave

One of the world's longest and most complex caves and 28,295 acres of mixed-grass prairie, ponderosa pine forest, and associated wildlife are the main features of the park. The park's mixed grass prairie is one of the few remaining and is home to native wildlife such as bison, elk, pronghorn, mule deer, coyotes, and prairie dogs.

No stalactites nor stalagmites here, but a delicate mineral sort of weaving..

The cave is well known for its outstanding display of box-work, an unusual cave formation composed of thin calcite fins resembling honeycombs.
