The early eplorers didn't had the luxury we have today. Back then there were no cut paths so they often had to use head lamps and crawl deep underground to find the beauties awaiting them beneath. Today, you can litteraly walk through most of the worthwhile halls. It has damaged the cave a bit, but not as much as you may believe.
Blue Lagoon (a.k.a. Horseshoe...
Blue Lagoon (a.k.a. Horseshoe Lake)
No cavern will be complete without its misterious underground lagoon. The blue lagoon is definitly amazing. None of my pictures makes it justice. It's just crystal clear all through.
There is not much in the way of organic life, but take a look at this inorganic forest formation. It's just amazing what nature created no? Keep in mind that it takes hundreds and thousands of years for the formations you see to form so please do not harm this beauties.
I don't know if I was hungry by now or what, but after a while it looked like popcorn was coming out of the cavern walls. Take a look and judge for yourself :).
Ice Room (aka Wedding Room)
What better place to tie the knot than in this lovely room no? There has been many a wedding inside this lovely room. There are many kewl formations here including the ones shown here.
Not to dissapoint the comic/movie hero fans out there, there are plenty of crystals that look like they came out of the Superman movies :).
Is this scuba diving or what?
Getting back to the underworld, we quickly come across this hall with tons of formations resembling the beauties of the sea. For the scuba addicts out there this will surely bring back memories.
As you make your way along the path of the tour, you come across this lovely formation that resembles an old tree with the hanging branches and all.
As if the glazed apple wasn't enough, the caverns creeps up on your stomach with this candy like formations. Look at the cotton-candy look alike... yummy :).
Just don't eat too much candy or you won't be able to squeez by the imfamous snake pit... it's a scary sight for little kids :). Expand the pic for a better view.
All that walking sure makes my stomage rumble... seeing this giant glazed apple didn't helped at all :).
Who says you can't have Christmas in July? The Cavern of Sonora has an all-year-round Christmas tree on display all the time. It's another of the jewels you will come across on the tour
