Re: Ogof Draenen

I am so very, very sorry to whoever is subjected to going through Life On Mars to see the potential CCCs. Very hard work with some uncomfortably small passages on the way there. I wouldn't have bothered, but the second set is really quite special, with really unusual CCC formations. The first and th...

Re: Agen Allwedd

And also not sure about this one. Sits in another very active streamway which floods regularly, but has not flooded to this level for several decades at least. Could simply be debris that got washed into place. The area is covered in spent carbide that has been discarded, and is therefore much more ...

Re: Agen Allwedd

Not so sure about this one. It has the look of cryogenic gypsum deposits, sitting on a rock without any crystals directly above, but it also sits in a very active streamway which floods regularly. Suggests that CCCs would have been washed off over the millennia. Also has a broken straw lying on the ...
