Nothing special about this stop on the trail leading around the big room of the cavern.

We weren't even sure which pit was "the" bottomless pit at first. There are a lot of places along the walk that seem to just drop off into nothingness. An interesting spot.

It was really neat to see and scary to imagine just how deep it really goes in the earth. Interesting.
