Some folks may find this interesting.

Kyle Voyles has after many years of consideration not renewed the status of the Color Country Grotto. He has been holding out thinking that when the restoration of Bloomington Cave occuring that more interest would be created. Well, the project has come and gone and so has the grotto. So St. George has had the Dixie Grotto and the Color Country Grotto come and go.

I told Kyle that this will allow the new grotto to have a more appropriate name like the "Kyle Country Grotto." He replied if they recreate the grotto that its new name would be the "Arizona Strippers!" : ) You know because their main caving area is the Arizona Strip. Well anyway, I got a kick out of it.

Well the remaining grotto members are planning to visit Candlelight next month - that would be Kyle, his wife, Jason Knight, and I. So may end the need for a 5th grotto in the rotation.

Kinda sad when you think about it. The Color Country area does have a number of interesting limestone caves other than Bloomington. I'm sure Kyle did his best to generate interest among the locals and hoped that the restoration project would spur interest in becoming members and expanding the known membership.
Guess it was fun while it lasted.

Kudos to Kyle for all his hard work and efforts in maintaining that grotto for the time it was running.

Very Happy
