Featuring the famed Bonneville Salt Flats and punctuated by mountains​, Utah’s stark western desert doesn’t seem like an easy place to survive without modern conveniences. But nestled in this arid landscape is a cave with evidence of human habitation dating back to more than 11,000 years. And on November 14, you have a chance to visit it.



Lowering oneself down into a dark cavern, crawling and climbing over rocks, and slinking through narrow openings and over damp, cold slippery rocks is all part of the Bloomington Cave experience. The cave sits on the eastern slope of the Beaver Dam Mountains, approximately 15 miles west of St. George, it is managed by the Bureau of Land Management and is open to the public to explore on a permit basis.
