Connection Found Between Indiana’s Blowing Hole and Binkley Cave

February 13, 2012 / Indiana, United States, North America

This past Saturday February 11th, a connection was made between southern Indiana’s Blowing Hole and Binkley Caves.

A hole found in the breakdown between the 11 kilometer (7 mile) long Blowing Hole Cave and the 44.5 kilometer (27.7 mile) Binkley Cave allowed for physical human contact.

The connection resulted in a total length of the cave at 55.87 kilometers (34.72 miles), with much more passage yet to be discovered.
