Why are we still calling this cave "Nielsons Well". At a Utah Grottos meeting nearly a decade ago it was officially decided by everyone there that the name Well would be dropped entirely. It was initially called that because the first explorers thought that it was a single drop. After it was revealed that the pit was much more than that, the name "Cave" was officially applied and the name Nielsons Well referred only to the entrance pit. We no longer call Jim Peck Cave "Ice Chute Cave", or Dan Clyde Cave "South Fork Cave" because they were renamed. Everyone has agreed to that. Let's delete all references to Nielsons Well and use the name Nielsons Cave. Someone needs to contact Gulden and get him to change the listing. I've tried but apparently I lack the credentials. Also, change the names of the maps on both the Timp Grotto and SL Grotto websites to only Nielsons Cave.

Thank you,
