Caves
« on: 24/02/2006 18:35:27 »

Is any one interested in the fantastic formations in caves? i think
they are the most awesome natural products of nature, i have only visited a couple in the uk, but have seen pics of others, for sure
my number one places to visit.

have you been to wookie hole,brilliant,got a swiss village formation reflected in a pool.
central france is good too,limestone areas are best,as im sure any of the more experienced will tell you.
paeleontology was my fave at school,then the guy who taught it left and i changed to cigarettes.

wonders, any one that has is lucky, please show any thing you have,
