Hidden Lake Cave
After Agama Cave we headed over to Hidden Lake cave which is a nice cave for this area as it is decorated and has a natural filter where the entrance is over 1000ft from the basin.

Scott, Justin, and I hiked up into the cave entrance and there were several other entrances that appeared to no go very far but seemed to be interesting for a future visit.

We head into the cave and start on a dusty crawl into this room with gray and red colored walls and muddy formations.

  It was pretty warm and moist in this room which might have helped the formations and helped with the make up of the cave itself.

I followed a side passage that kept going up but ended with a large rock blocking further passage.

There were some interesting red and blue clay colors in this cave as well as some gypsum crystals that appeared to have peeled off of the walls.

We continue into the back of the lake section, which was dry, and passed by some table top formations and columns.  this led to a popcorn room and some really interesting formations in a room.

 There was also a flowstone that appeared to continue but I did not go up the passage so I could avoid ruining anything.  We also went into another formation room which had flowstone walls and interesting colum formations.

This is a really nice cave for this area and I want to make sure we keep this cave protected from damage to as much as possible.
