Description

While exploring one of the many Lava tubes at the Lava Tubes National Monument I encountered a portion of the tube illuminated through an opening about 6 to 8 foot in dimater about 20 feet above the tube (cave) floor. the sunlight illuminated the many dramatic colors of the rock which do not appear when using a flashlight or a camera flash.
