10 Incredible Underground Lakes and Rivers

Far below the Earth’s surface, where the sun rarely penetrates, is a world of twinkling glow worms, precious gems and limestone caves and mountains, a land inhabited by nature alone. Within this world are visions to rival many landscapes decorating our horizon; lakes lie still and calm, great networks of caves know no borders and rivers and rivulets carve an ever-evolving terrain.

The lake pictured here is a sacred spot on the Yucatan Peninsula. See all ten at Environmental Graffiti. Link -via reddit

Cool! Hamilton Pool is on the list! It's every bit as gorgeous as the pictures, too. And there's several tame catfish in the pool, they'll come up and swim around your ankles like a bunch of aquatic puppies.

HUGE three-foot-long aquatic puppies!

It's well worth the quarter-mile hike and occupancy restrictions. (Only 75 vehicles are allowed at a time, to keep the impact down.) You're surrounded by gigantic cypress trees and limestone bluffs and cold rushing water. Ahhhh, bliss...
