Did you know that the Timpanogos cave system is home to 43 different types, subtypes and varieties of described speleothems (cave formations)? There are probably even more that haven't been discovered yet. The spaciousness of the big room is quite a contrast to the cramped quarters of the Middle Cave fault.

Here is another example of an expansive flowstone.

The delicate looking formation below is known as frostwork. Frostwork formations are needle-like sprays of aragonite crystals. It is so tempting to touch them, but visitors have to resist not only because formations may break but also because oils from human fingers (even clean ones) coat cave formations. This results in discoloration and prevents natural growth processes form occurring.

This picture shows a portion of the big room. How many different types of speleothems can you spot?
