The Virtual Cave

My mom and dad tell me I've been picking up rocks all my life. These are a few fossils and rock samples from my collection. One of the rocks is a piece of limestone. I found it outside the cave where I had my first science adventure with The Black Hole Gang.

We traveled to Missouri to clean up a limestone cave that had been trashed by people who don't know how to cave softly. You can read about our adventure in a book called The Dark Zone.
