Cave Formations and Waterlines

Detailed Description

A series of speleothems, or cave formations, in the Caverns of Sonora. A prior waterline can be seen in the formations where the color changes from primarily white (formations formed in the air) to more beige (formations formed underwater). In addition, the previously submerged formations are larger than the ones that formed above the waterline.
