"It's weird stuff...like from the movie Aliens."

"Oh my God...Ewwww!"
Mystery Cave is a Minnesota State Park located in southern MN. It is a unique Minnesota treasure. An ongoing 3D mapping of the cave estimates it to contain over 15 miles of tunnels.
I first toured the cave over 30 years ago when it was privately owned. This summer I toured it again on 4 separate occasions, taking over 1000 pictures. After reviewing the World Wide Web I could find no books and few pictures of Mystery Cave so this book should fill the niche nicely.
I also discovered Mystery Cave could in the future be closed to the public due to a fungus. The fungus has not been found in Mystery Cave but Wisconsin State officials are currently considering closing caves to the public; humans are believed responsible for bringing the fungus in. The fungus has wiped out over 90% of the bat population in some caves in the United States.
The back of the book contains info on this fungus. The 350 pages are open for full viewing.
