Exploring the Kuna Caves

In the middle of a farm field 15 minutes southeast of Nampa is a stone circle with a hole in the middle of it.

Take a peek into the hole and you will see a 50-foot drop into an underground cavern.

A long, caged ladder descends to the floor and for those brave enough to climb down the ladder a lava tube system awaits.

I’d been to the Kuna Caves – there is only one cave, however – once as a freshman in college. It was an excursion with my dorm wing and a girls’ dorm wing.

That outing featured a car being messed up and my RA inexplicably lighting a fire near the base of the ladder which quickly filled the cave with smoke and we all got to climb up the ladder while inhaling large quantities of smoke.
