Ye Olde Town Pump


Time for a little compare and contrast. As I mentioned a while back, I visited some caverns while I was in Ohio. One of them, creatively called Ohio Caverns, featured the odd-shaped formation above, a deformed soda straw called Old Town Pump. I recognized it from the website as soon as we walked by it, except that I didn't realize it was so small. I doubt if the pump part is over two inches tall. Anyhow, I bring it to you tonight so you can decide if it's pump-like or not. Below is a picture of an old pump, taken at a different cavern in Ohio, coincidentally next to a cemetery. Do you see a resemblance?
