[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Strange rocks in a cave off the highway near the Grand Canyon. Not as beautiful or grand as Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico, but interesting in a small way. Quite dark, the formations are difficult to see. They are very fragile, and crumble if touched. A man bought these caves, long, long ago, thinking they had gold, silver and diamonds. He was very wrong! The cave had a mummified wild cat, and a prehistoric sloth bear, not much else. Only way to make money, was to take tourists on a tour!

Dear Gloria Didi,
Great coverage of this cave with excellent informative photographer's note. What is it exactly a dripstone or a flowstone???
