A Giant Crystal-Filled Cave was Discovered in California by amateur cavers.
September 26, 2006—Four amateur explorers have discovered a giant, crystal-filled cave in California's Sequoia National Park that scientists are hailing as a major find.
I have always dreamed of finding something like this in my back yard.
It seems I have passed it on to my kids as well.
My boys have told me of their crawling head first into every little hole that they find in the woods. So I give them the stern warning about being careful and then grin really big.
It seems the apple doesn't fall far from the tree after all.
And as we walk they share that their dream cave they will find is also filled with ancient treasures just as mine have always been.
I wish it would have been me but finds like this still keep my hope alive.
Well done cavers and good for you!
