As a quick add on...
That was the highest level of Aquifer in the state, despite being under ground, In essence I was still a few thousand feet above sea level.
Why i''l be going back is because it's the right amount of water for there to be... yet another system of drainage down somewhere in that lake for
yet a way down to another level.
That both scares the heck out of me and fascinates me.
Because I know 2 thing about the area.
1: There is yet another aquifer under this one, wells pump from a second location in places from a spot around the 1 mile + mark, this had to be a
good 2,500-3,000 feet, the next at over a mile which is sea level...
The water gets down there, theres a spill zone in that place somewhere to the next level
2: the Govt also keeps a base on the rim, Multiples in AZ actually, It's in that book Richard Sauder, PhD "Underground Bases and Tunnels (What is
the Government trying to Hide) multiple bases and the near by one is
just over a mile underground
So depths of the next water level matches where I am sure given what I know from those who drill wells, is the next aquifer level, they definitely
given depths are putting these bases right on the underground lakes where the natural caverns are.
Belief in a subterranean world has been handed down as myth, tale or rumor for generations from all over the world. Some of these stories date back to
ancient times such as Socrates referring to huge hollows within the earth, inhabited by man. The Hopis Indians believed they emerged from a world
below the earth through a tunnel at the base of the San Francisco peaks near Flagstaff, Arizona.
I'll say this much... MY Loc, is inbetween the San Fransisco Peaks and the Mile plus deep base East of Winslow
I was still a couple thousand feet above that set of caverns though in what i'm describing
I am willing to bet...
That Layer extends through veins and chanmbers all the way through the rim into New Mexico and the surrounding caverns including Dulce, Through the
Grand Canyon systems out to are 51, under Cali to various locations...
The things thats scary though is, to go that far down would mean... maybe not being able to get back up, I'd be going against a flow of water going
down trying to come back up to the first layer unless I find a dry tunnel...
and I doubt that would happen, the way down would be through water
(unless I can get one of those giant drills)
like this bad boy
Would be nice,
But that's what I'm after, The One Mile plus mark and the aquifer underneath the one I have gotten into, that's ... where it all is. That's where
I'll find answers and i'm pretty close
The Hopis Indians believed they emerged from a world below the earth through a tunnel at the base of the San Francisco peaks near Flagstaff,
Had to repeat this...
This intrigues me, because Flag is a dead Volcano
I do the Lava tube that's common for a picnic day with kids, took my 3 year old recently...
But in the same Mountain somewhere, covered obviously, would be a Lava Tube straight down... or series of them.
The Volcano has been dormant for 1,000,000 years although the field is potentially active, The Hopi legend in theory makes allot of sense, in those
mts is a tunnel right down intersecting with the various aquifers and cavern systems all the way down
Funny thing is, I didn't know all the legends of the area, the small Lava Tube up there was the first actual cave I ever went into sans a guide
(it's popular though) and there are others people don't know about...
I got my start in being a lunatic undergrounder...
Under the Subways, in the tunnels all around NYC
some cool links, I've been to most of these places
under ny photography
I just started going down there when I was a teen, I would do graffitti in the subway so I guess that got me used the dark and the dangers, and then I
found open doors and soon... it became something I'd just do for fun
But I never hit an actual cave of any size, until I was about to graduate college 8 years after the first time I walked an abandoned subway corridor
