Cave Visitors Look for Signs of Horses


Horse Thief Cave in eastern Iowa was recently visited by the 42N staff. The large entrance, shallow interior cave is located at Wapsipinicon State Park in Anamosa, Iowa. It is worth visiting if you are in the area but it doesn't extend too far back - so you may be disappointed. But perhaps the cave is actually larger. You never know if other entrances or extensions are present although hidden on purpose or naturally. Get your helmet, mud clothes and flashlight and explore. A more expansive cave system is located 40 miles from this location at Maquoketa.
