Guys and gals,
For reference, here are some pictures of collapsed or low level entrances into lava tubes... straight from google earth.
(Just a small part of the many that I have explored)
1. Kuna Cave
43 24' 43.72" N
116 26' 44.12" W
2. Higby Cave
43 17' 44.12" N
116 07' 56.94" W
3. Eureka Cave
43 07' 21.59" N
115 34' 27.73" W
I will say that I disagree with the idea put forth that the op's images are lava tubes.
For one, the size of the entrance collapse zone is too large. Secondly, from what I have seen by the pictures given... there is no noticeable volcanic
flow nearby to trace it to.
The fact of them all being in line is something worthy of note here, as it could imply being related to the same system (since they are in a localized
area) but it is pretty simple to draw a line between 3 points and deduce a straight line:
Take this for instance:
The same three caves mentioned above, only shown in a higher viewing altitude.
Now, that lid or hatch structure defies any natural rock formation or anything I have encountered near a cave, ever. It does not resemble the
surrounding terrain at all,
That is the most puzzling aspect of this, to me... is what that thing is. It looks metal, and not natural at all. I'm gonna say that is one hell of
an anomaly, and a great find sir!
[nevermind the edit]
