Middle Earth

Do you ever wonder what is below our feet? As a planet, we put billions into exploring other planets and sending things out of our solar system. Which I'm not saying is a bad thing, I would love to explore space. But why have we not mapped the inside of our planet as thoroughly as we have mapped moons of distant planets? 

After watching a recent video about cave photographer Chris Higgins, I felt the same desire of exploration as I do when watching shows like Cosmos or Brian Cox's various series about the Wonders outside our planet. The only difference is I wanted to explore wonders of my own back yard, rather than be blasted off into space. 

We live in an incredible area geologically. I had no idea that places such as what is pictured below were just hanging out in random areas unknown to most people. It is truly awesome and I can't wait to find more places like this. 

I will post most of the photos from the cave here today but none of these give even an ounce of perspective to how truly amazing this spot really was.

Hope you Enjoy :)

And I couldn't decide if I liked the black and white or color of the next image.
