TIMPANOGOS CAVE NATIONAL MONUMENT, Utah (AP) -- Maintenance crews and volunteers spent 10 days clearing snow and rocks off the trail that leads to Timpanogos Cave National Monument.
In some places avalanches throughout the winter caused 15-foot snow drifts.
Cave superintendant Kit Mullen said there was a lot of work that needed to be done before the cave can open on Saturday.
Paul Allred, a 16-year-old Eagle Scout from Provo, was at the cave in April with five of his fellow Scouts helping to shovel snow and rocks off the trail.
He said there was quite a bit of snow and most of it was about waist level, and some was above his head.
