Rainbow Cavern

Unlike other caves that I have been in where they use colored lights in many areas of the cave to illuminate formations, this is the only area in Longhorn Cavern that colored lights were used. They were used in this area to show off the crystals in the walls that were only found in this area of the cave. Quite a contrast to the white lights that were used to light up the cave in the other areas with smooth swiss cheese like walls. This is also one of the few areas of the cavern that have stalactites as seen in this shot.
