Photographer's Note

Here's one for all you geology buffs and spelunkers. These are called cave clubs, and they grow from the ceiling (think stalactites with an extra feature) at the Caverns of Sonora. It doesn't take much imagination to see how they got their name.

I suppose all cave photography is difficult. Uneven (artifical) lighting, deep shadows, and the fact you can't leave the path to get a better angle (or closer, or farther away), coupled with the fact our guide was rushing us a little bit made for many bad photos. The owners of the cave were serving a Thanksgiving day dinner/lunch for all the workers, and he couldn't join in until the tour was done. :)

Still, out of all the commerical caves in Texas (except for the "cave without a name", which I haven't visited yet), this one is definately the prettiest.
