Watching a Dream come True

I have been involved with what is now Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park since 1982.  My caving buddy from the Colorado School of Mines, Steve had the idea to reopen a historical comercial cave called Fairy Cave.  We actually got ran off for trespassing the first time we visited the cave.

It took Steve about 17 years to get a deal done with the previous owner, and Steve and his wife Jeanne were gracious enough to allow me to be a partner even though I could not financially contribute much.

Steve has always been the visionary of building the business.  It has been an amazing journey watching his dream evolve into what it is today. 

There have been many ups and downs over the last twelve years since we opened, but Steve continues to chase his passion and make his dream come true.

I put a lot of effort in the first couple years, but since then I just come to visit, see what he has got done, and
to say WOW!

So, this weekend I made the journey over two snowy passes to Glenwood Springs once again to enjoy a stay with Steve and Jeanne.  
It is fun to come over in the Spring, because I get to see what Steve ( left ) and Kelly ( right ) have dreamed up and made happen over the winter.

Steve is the dreamer and Kelly is the "make it happen" guy!  The stuff these two create over a winter is simply amazing!
One of this spring's new additions is a bungie jump tower, with a zip line coming off the side!
It's awesome!
That's a lady jumping off, after taking about 10 minutes to get up the nerve to go!   It is huge amount's of entertainment for the guests watching below!
