Ready to explore a cave?
« på: 04.04.2018 09:38 »
"Missouri is honeycombed with more than 7,300 documented caves — nationally second only to Tennessee — that are deep and long enough to warrant exploration. Explorers find more every year. And who knows how many private land owners are secretly sitting on caves in order to avoid traffic, trespassing and liability, experts say."


"“We don’t want people doing caves that are very sensitive.”

The damage can range from marring sensitive geology to spreading a disease that could wipe out the state’s bat population. In addition, he said, working through a group heads off spreading a bad reputation of cave explorers among landowners. In fact, most of the state’s caves are on private land."

"When I try to imagine a faultless love
Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
W.H. Auden, "In Praise of Limestone"
