About the Book
"It's weird stuff...like from the movie Aliens." "Reminds me of looking down an outhouse." "Oh my God...Ewwww!" Mystery Cave is a Minnesota State Park located in southern MN. It is a unique Minnesota treasure. An ongoing 3D mapping of the cave estimates it to contain over 15 miles of tunnels. I first toured the cave over 30 years ago when it was privately owned. This summer I toured it again on 4 separate occasions, taking over 1000 pictures. After reviewing the World Wide Web I could find no books and few pictures of Mystery Cave so this book should fill the niche nicely. I also discovered Mystery Cave could in the future be closed to the public due to a fungus. The fungus has not been found in Mystery Cave but Wisconsin State officials are currently considering closing caves to the public; humans are believed responsible for bringing the fungus in. The fungus has wiped out over 90% of the bat population in some caves in the United States. The back of the book contains info on this fungus. The 350 pages are open for full viewing. "Save a bat you fungi people...wash your feet!"
