Why giant Canada cave was never spotted

Recommended Posts

"An enormous, ancient cave in B.C.'s rugged alpine went undetected for hundreds of years largely because it was filled with ice and blanketed by snow until sometime within the last decade, researchers have found. 

"A scientific paper published this week said a steadily warming climate ate away at the snow plug until it suddenly collapsed, revealing the black hole in Wells Gray Provincial Park that was discovered in 2018.

""This is an amazing, amazing, earth-formed natural feature ... but, yes, [found] as a result of climate change, which is unfortunate," said geologist Catherine Hickson, who co-authored the paper after becoming one of the first people inside the cave entrance."

 it's only safe to enter the cave when the river levels are low in September and October.

Hickson has a prediction about what might be found inside.

"We think it may connect to a much more ancient cave system," Hickson said.

"What we don't know is the state of those open passages, how far they go," she said. "We know that in other caves around the world, there's life that has been adapted to that extreme environment. But until we actually go down there, we're not going to be able to say very much."

Not a good candidate for human habitation, but man oh man there should be plenty of bones in the hole from animals falling in.

But .... if no bigfoot bones are found, it proves that the Smithsonian got there first and removed them :tu:
