Wind Cave National Park

The Wind Cave National Park holds the honor of being the first ever cave to gain national park status anywhere on the globe. It’s another of the American reserves dedicated by keen naturalist Teddy Roosevelt, which means it got its tags way back in 1903. The focal point? How about one of the longest and densest underground systems going? A whopping 150 miles of tunnels and chambers exist here beneath the rolling South Dakotan prairie.
