Happy Anniversary of the Flint-Mammoth Connection, making the mammoth cave system the longest in the world.
September 9, 1972, a six-person CRF team of John Wilcox, Pat Crowther, Zopf, Gary Eller, Stephen Wells, and Cleveland Pinnix (a National Park Service ranger) followed Hanson's Lost River downstream to discover its connection with Echo River in Mammoth Cave. With this linking of the Flint Ridge and Mammoth Cave systems, the "Everest of speleology" had been climbed. Since then the known length has now reached 412 miles of mapped passageways with no end in site. #longestcaveintheworld #longestcave #findyourpark #mammothcavenationalpark ... See MoreSee Less
