staircase that does NOT walk you out the front door! Simply gorgeous…love the openness of the house
I didn’t know I needed this until now.
a song of ice and fire. photos by einar rúnar sigurðsson from iceland’s vatnajokull ice caves, which lie bellow a 3,100 cubic kilometre glacier. formed as melt water from geothermal heat and summer temperatures carve through the ice flow, these caverns, subject to glacial motion, are constantly moving and changing shape, and can thus collapse in on explorers at any moment (killing one photographer in 2011). these photos were taken in winter, when the ice is more stable, but when temperatures inside the caves can drop to -120 celcius. (see also: previous posts on glaciospeleology and other caves)
Provided you aren’t nyctophobic, claustrophobic, acrophobic or simply can’t stand caves, it’s time to pack a bag and join us for another Geyser of Awesome Field Trip. This time we’re headed for Wales, specifically an abandoned slate mine in Blaenau Ffestiniog, a mining town in North Wales. There we’ll be climbing, bouncing, jumping and sliding to our hearts’ content on an awesome network of huge trampolines and slides called Bounce Below.
"The tourist attraction features three giant trampolines suspended across the cave, ranging from 20 feet to 180 feet high. Ten foot net walls prevent people from climbing out, while walkways connect the trampolines, and slides offer an easy way to exit. As visitors jump around, the walls of the surrounding cavern are illuminated with glowing blue, green, pink, and purple lights."
Wanna go here! Wherever it is!
