Sapphire Tunnel Cave

We’ve known about this cave for some time, but it wasn’t until 2015 that we were finally able to put together a trip to see if we could find it. After a few hours of climbing ladders and walking miles into the center of a mountain, we reached it.

Its scale is hard to grasp at over 100 ft tall and 80 ft x 80 ft wide. It is stunningly impressive. The cave was originally discovered by miners who broke into this cave while working the mine. Apparently, not caring for caves too much, they found the cave a convenient place to dump waste rock, covering much of the original floor up. Who knows what lies buried beneath?

Not its real name and no directions to this site.
