So secret even I dont know where it is ???? – but I have a picture !!!!
In terms of secrets this one certainly tops the list – situated somewhere in Ontario the cave is simply dripping with beautiful stone deposits. Several years ago cavers of the SQS discovered this shaft and the accompanying speleothems and in the interests of science Parks Canada closed the feature to the public.
Those who know the cave’s whereabouts call this “Root Cave”. From what I can remember hearing about the cave, there was – or is – some kind of study that considers the effects of bacteria on plant roots and their role in speleothem formation. These pictures were taken by Corneile on the initial day of discovery before the cave was closed and for those of us non-scientists – it is all we will ever see of that fantastic spot.
I will post a couple of other pictures in the next few days to give a better understanding of the caves incredible beauty. It is discoveries such as these that keep us looking – I am sure there is lots yet to be found.
Oh, BTW, if anyone wants to contribute to the site feel free to send me your caving or rock related pictures of Ontario.
