Inner Space

Normally, I show a lot of space related stuff (hence the name of the blog), but every once and a while you need to look inward at the beauty of our little (and I do mean little) part of the Universe.  I want to go to Chile to visit the great astronomical telescopes high in the mountains.  But after seeing these pictures, I have another reason to want to visit.  Enjoy.

Marble Caves, Patagonia, Chile

 Marble Caves, Patagonia, Chile

The Marble Caves of Patagonia, Chile, are beautiful vibrant blue caverns, partially submerged in the equally stunning turquoise waters of Carrera Lake. The lake itself is on the border of Argentina and Chile, with the caves located on the Chilean side. The caves are comprised of three main caverns: the Chapel (La Capilla), the Cathedral (El Catedral), and the Cave (La Cueva). Visitors to the caves can explore them in a small boat or kayak, but only when Carrera Lake’s waters are calm and gentle. A rare and invaluable natural wonder, the existence of these caves is currently threatened by plans to build five large dams in the area.
