Heard more often than seen,
the crafty and resourceful coyote is a minor deity in the religion of many of the southwestern
Indian tribes. Coyotes are abundant in the southwest and in Colossal Cave Mountain Park.
Colossal Cave Mountain Park is located
near the Saguaro National Park East. These cacti are unique to the Sonoran Desert and are
found nowhere else in the world. It can take up to one hundred years for a Saguaro Cactus to grow its arms.

across bridges. Note that full-fingered gloves are required but not provided; we have gloves for purchase or you may bring your own. After your tour, you'll enjoy a cozy fire (weather permitting) and
a delicious southwestern dinner under the stars. Reservations required. Want more information? Just

a quarter mile into the depths of the earth. We provide hard hats and lights; full-fingered gloves are required but not provided; we have gloves
for purchase or you may bring your own. Participants must be physically fit, agile, and able to scale obstacles. The tour size is
limited to six people and lasts two to three hours. For an additional fee you can enjoy a buffet dinner, and, when weather permits,
a bonfire on the ramada after your Wild Cave Tour. The dinner and bonfire must be requested when you make your reservations.
