Enormous cave discovered in Canada, ‘as big as they come,’ experts say
A helicopter team counting caribou in British Columbia, Canada, recently made an unexpected discovery during an aerial survey: Crew members spied an opening to a massive cave that had never been seen before and which might be the largest cave in the country.
Found in April in an alpine valley in Wells Gray Provincial Park, the cave's mouth gapes 328 feet across — if the Statue of Liberty were tipped over on its side, it would just about span the opening. The width of the cave is similarly impressive, measuring 197 feet, and the cave extends at least 443 feet straight down, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported.
Seen from the air, the cave resembles a giant bite taken out of the hillside. Steep, rocky walls plunge downward, and a waterfall cascades more than 525 feet over the edge.

A hole in the ground, so big and sort of round it was
There was I, digging it deep,
It was flat at at the bottom and the sides were steep,
When along, comes this bloke in a bowler which he lifted and scratched his head
Well he looked down the hole, poor demented soul and he said
Do you mind if I make a suggestion?
Don't dig there, dig it elsewhere
Your digging it round and it ought to be square
The shape of it's wrong, it's much too long
And you can't put hole where a hole don't belong!
