Title Rock composition at Bender's Cave
Creator  Seibel, George A.
Notes  Also known as Devil's Cave or Sorceror's Cave, Bender's Cave is located just north of Hubbard Point, the origin of the falls. It runs along the same layer of Lockport limestone as Sunny's cave and Indian cave. Here we see the interior cave-wall and the discolouration that has occured to the limestone after so many thousands of years.
Date  1975.

Title Solution channel in sectioned limestone block
Creator  Tiplin, Albert H.
Notes  Here we have a minature example of how most caves are formed. Small deposits of salt or other solutions gradually erode away a path in rock, creating a channel in which that solution continues to flow. If left long enough, this solution channel would have eventually become an actual cave.
