Travel Thursday – Lake Cave


 

Perth & WA: Lake Cave, originally uploaded by anthonli.

My photos are taking an extended break from Vietnam, and what to do, I have some 200 selected photos from my trip to Perth.
Here is the beautiful Lake Cave at Margaret River, WA.
On the right is one of the only 2 known suspended tables in the world, and the only one that is available for public viewing. A suspended table is when a stalagmite meets a stalactite, and the resulting column supports a piece of the cave floor even after the rest had been eroded away. The column is currently supporting a table that is 5 ton in weight. This shows the impressive strength of limestone and really highlights how amazing our world is.
