5 Astonishing Mystical and Bewitched Caves

Life in the Fast Lane has a great collection of pictures featuring caves. I love caves. In Southern Oregon, in the same mountain range that contains Oregon Caves National Monument, there are many unmarked smaller caves that I used to explore. Very cool. Unless you're claustrophobic.

Here are a couple of pictures from the post and a video of Carlsbad Caverns.
