I'll preface this by saying that I am no scholar in these matters, but have a huge curiosity and interest in the idea of an underground network of
living quarters (an underground city?) in the Grand Canyon. I hadn't really done a lot of reading on the topic, since much of the information I've
seen goes back to a single article from the Arizona Gazette in 1909, relating fresh information from GE Kincaid who discovered a nearly inaccessible
cave halfway up a 3200 foot cliff face. Link to that article...
So, this morning I was looking for further info on the subject and came upon a description of clues from that article that were used in conjunction
with topographical maps, and knowledge of the general area of Arizona to come up with the most likely area of the Colorado river to have been the spot
where GE Kincaid noticed "stains in the sedimentary formation" that led him to the cave entrance.
That link here...
I further noticed that if I take a look at this area on Google Maps (Search for Kwagunt Rapids, and look specifically at the area 6 miles down river
from that spot), it is one of the only stretches of the Colorado River that does not have a bunch of photos (at least...nothing looking east at the
cliff walls.) Looking at it on Google Earth, if you activate 3D terrain, and actually move down into the canyon, it just looks like a bunch of low-rez
stretched images (though knowing how the GE 3D terrain is created, this is no big surprise). An image search turns up plenty of "on the river"
images taken by tourists in boats or by observers on the edges of cliffs, but most of those could hardly be pinned down to a specific location or
So... is anyone aware of better images of this area, or resources for further investigation, or anything further on the cave? Has anyone actually
gone there to look for this entrance? There is mention in the article about a breeze that blows through, indicating that there is another entrance.
Is there anything about the other entrance being found? Thanks!
