A Trip Inside Vermont’s Frozen Cave Is Positively Surreal
You may not know it, but there are many caves in Vermont and most of them aren’t easy to get to. We’ve found a few great videos of cave exploration in none other than Dorset, Vermont. Since it’s winter, we thought we’d show you the inside of this frozen cave in VT from a Youtube video by barese420. If you’re claustrophobic, you may want to stick to the video for this one!
You'll need the right vehicle to get to this cave! Snow wheeling is serious business!
Pulling up to the entrance to the cave is surreal.
It's deceptively large!
Once inside, you'll see icicles hanging from all over the ceilings.
And sometimes even growing up!
While the cave is stunning in its natural glory, we could certainly do without the graffiti.
We urge you to respect these spots throughout Vermont and keep them litter free.
Cave exploring in Vermont is actually a pretty big thing... If you can handle it!

Have you heard of the Aeolus Cave (or Dorset Bat Cave) located in the Taconic Mountains in East Dorset?
Before white nose syndrome reduced its bat population, the Aeolus Bat Cave was noted for being the largest bat hibernaculum in the northeastern United States.
Use caution when inside a cave here or anywhere. These icicles are huge!
