High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The Grand Canyon Caverns (Havasupai: athiil wa a or athiil ha a,35 31 44 N 113 13 54 W / 35.52889 N 113.23167 W / 35.52889; -113.23167Coordinates: 35 31 44 N 113 13 54 W / 35.52889 N 113.23167 W / 35.52889; -113.23167), located just a few miles east of Peach Springs, Arizona, lie 230 feet (70 m) below ground level. They are among the largest of dry caverns in the United States. Dry caverns are a rarity in that as little as 3% of caverns in the world are dry. Because of this fact, stalagmites and stalactites are very few in numbers. Air comes into the caverns from the Grand Canyon through 60 miles (97 km) of limestone caves. Scientists were curious as to how far the caverns extended and looked for a safe means of finding out. Rather than explore the canyons, which could take years, red smoke flares were ignited by University of Arizona students, and two weeks later red smoke was seen protruding from vents, near Supai, AZ, in the Grand Canyon, thus the name. The caverns are enormous, with measurements showing that the length of 3 football fields could fit snugly within its boundaries.
