Great article and pics. That is an internationally read news site. We might get some visitors from around the world to see Alabama caves.

That article was hard to stomach. There are four cases of extreme exaggeration in the title alone.
Of course, I'm proud of Amy for making a British tabloid.

Oh hush, you haters. :big grin: You know sensationalism makes for higher tabloid sales. I thought the article was fairly well written, and one of those HDR images is quite stunning. Getting cave photos published outside the caving community is no small feat, and deserving of some kudos.

As if Neversink pictures haven't been published like a million gazillion times outside the caving community already. Personally I feel like once you've done this pit you should move on to another one. Yes it's pretty but there are thousands of pits and this one is already greatly over used & abused. That's all it needs is more attention!

Published internationally outside the caving community like a million gazillion times? I don't know that British tabloid readers will flock across in droves to give the pit their undivided attention, but it's possible I suppose.

Lighten up folks. It's a beautiful place and people like to see beautiful pictures of beautiful places. Besides, it's not like the readers will get interested in pit-bouncing once they have had their fill of the Kardashians and whatever Paris Hilton is wearing or not wearing.
