Russian Ice Caves


You win a million points if you knew what this was without reading the title.



This ice cave was miraculously formed at the bottom of a volcano located in the far eastern corner of Russia. They say it is a half-mile long and was formed by a stream running through a glacial field. "Thanks" to global warming, there has been light snowfall this year and warmer temperatures, causing the cave to open up and be reachable by explorers.






I'm becoming kind of strangely obsessed with Russia. For good reason, right?
