This is MYSTERY CAVE

September 7, 2012

Nothing to do with PHANTASY CAVE.

There’s a great cave in SE Minnesota called Mystery Cave. Several years ago we went on the “scenic tour” along lighted pathways in the cave. Last weekend we did the “flashlight tour” in a different section of the cave.

I was expecting powerful flashlights but only dim LED lights were provided. For the better though, because the feeling of darkness would have been lessened if everyone in the tour group carried D cell lanterns. As it was, the camera on my phone couldn’t take a picture unless many people shined their lights in the same area.

Sometimes my camera picked up the red spotting light that other cameras were emitting. Gave the appearance of a magical effect like you’d see on a cheap 1980s fantasy movie.

Would you drink from this pool?…

Big bats…not really…

A crater on the ceiling…

I took the following pic just as somebody’s flash camera went off. These formations (several feet in height) are usually completely submerged in water, but the dry summer has reduced the water depth to just two inches…

Watch your head…

Don’t touch that…

I told you not to touch it…

A nice roll on the Random Gem Table…
