Any ideas?

What are these? They're elevator cables in Carlsbad Caverns. The elevator shaft is 750 feet deep. The white on the wall is flowstone that has formed there in the 82 years since the shaft was blasted.
Where am I? I'm on top of the elevator car!
Why am I there? You'll have to wait until tomorrow for the answer to that one.

I hope you had a colleague keep the elevator shut off! How high up were you?

@cejaanderson We started at the surface and rode the elevator all the way to the underground lunchroom--750 feet down. The elevator mechanic was with me to operate the elevator and it went very slowly.

@pittcj17 @kathiecb Thanks for commenting. This was actually posted the day before the Kilroy shot. This is the wall of the elevator shaft where the Kilroy is. Not sure what tomorrow's shot will be yet.
