The Beauty of Caves

There were a few articles published recently that caught our eye. The Earth's cave systems are beautiful beyond belief. Some are awe inspiring cavernous spaces that just catch your breath they are so amazing.

Here are 2 pics from the Lake General Carrera cave in Patagonia, Chile. It is hailed as the Earth's most beautiful cave.

This Vietnamese cave system, The Hang Son Doong, was discovered in 2009 by some British spelunkers. It is so large that the end has yet to be found. It is simply breathtaking!

This cave system in Tennessee is a spelunker favorite. The 350 foot "Rumble Room" has climbers going crazy over it.

"The intrepid cavers reached the cave by plunging down large waterfalls, shimmying through tight underground spaces and swimming in the world's most remote underground rivers."
