Blue Spring Cave, Sparta, TN

This is an awesome cave. It is the largest cave in TN and the 9th largest in the USA. It is a wild cave (not commercial). Thanks to Judy for organizing the trip. We packed in (4) HID Lights that put out a combined 26,000 lumens. We used a GoPro and Canon Camcorder to shoot the video.

Enjoyed it. Love the illuminated passages. Maybe considering entering in the Video Salon that is held annually at convention? :waving:

Very nicely put together video. However, I've not heard anyone call that bridge Glovers Bridge before. I always new it as
Hanson's Crossing. Named for Hanson Carr the owner of the cave and the farm.

I couldn't remember the name of the bridge, so I named it Glovers Bridge because one of our guys dropped his "glove" into the pit, which we had to retrieve (LOL).

I'm not so sure about Johnson Avenue either. I have never heard that one before.
