Photos of a small room in a large cave in southern arizona. A few months ago another caver and I found this pretty well hidden entrance to a small room that had been deliberately blocked off by previous cavers. We were probably the first in there in about 30 years, some of the broken formations had some calcite formed thinly between them. Very delicate and I ended up coming out by taking my outer clothes off and squirming thru in a unitard sans helmet. I'll never go back, too pristine and tight to get in and out of. We reburied it and disquised it as best we could.
