Warren Cave - Antartica


This is Warren Cave in Antarctica, just one of several caves and passages carved in the ice around Mount Erebus. The cave is believed to have formed from melting due to the heat from the volcano. The scalloped ice, seen at the entrance to the cave, is likely caused from small air currents.
