Cave in the Desert

This is the opening to the Malheur Cave. We stopped here on the way to Crystal Crane Hot Springs. Legend has it that the Bannocks made war on a Piute Indian tribe and the Piutes hid out in this cave. The Bannocks laid siege to the cave and eventually the Piutes were starved out. The cave is really big.

We could walk in about 2/3 of a mile before the cave became filled with water. It was pitch black, and the camera didn't pick up the water behind us.
