Artist's Description

featured in Live, Love, Dream

straight from the box:Nikon P80;10mm;f/3.5;1/20 second;ISO 400

This is one of the large columns within the Luray Cavern complex in Virginia, named for the Roman god of the underworld.

Luray Caverns are the largest caverns in the eastern USA and a National Landmark. Some of the most spectacular creations were formed just one drip at at time, such as Giant’s Hall, vast expansive chambers decorated by predominately golden columns, 10-stories tall. The gold colors come from iron and clay soils seeping from the ground along with the calcium carbonate “drips.”

Just some of Luray’s other impressive formations include:

Titania’s Veil — primarily all white, and formed by pure crystalline drips
Frozen Fountain — a massive, somewhat rounded white flowstone
Empress Column — a golden column is formed when a stalactite and stalagmite meet. This one is huge!

See the world’s largest musical instrument at Luray Caverns, too!

The Stalacpipe Organ is played from a regular-size organ, but its organ pipes are the stalactites themselves, spreading over 3.5 underground acres, and wired with little rubber mallets.
