Cathedral of Nature
After a sinkhole opened at Top of the Rock Ozark Heritage Preserve in May 2015, Bass Pro Shops founder Johnny Morris went deep into a national treasure hunt that might reveal a hidden, secret passageway and massive cave system underneath.
By the Numbers:
Referred to as the Cathedral of Nature™ today, excavation crews have removed more than 1.6 million yards of earth and 108,000 loads of dirt and rock, in the hopes of discovering a passageway to connect the system and reveal a new wonder.
- Surface Width: Originally 70 feet wide, now 350 feet wide.
- Surface Length: Originally 100 feet long, now 600 feet long.
- Depth: Originally 40 feet deep, now 200 feet deep.
Crews will continue to work in search of a new connection, though Morris is pleased with the amazing findings already revealed.
