About this Image
This wallpaper shows Timpanogos Cave National Monument in Utah. Timpanogos Cave is known for its high concentration of helictites — a spiraling cave formation that seems to defy gravity. Helictites are formed when calcite crystals and dissolved impurities are forced out of a tiny central canal in the helictite by hydrostatic pressure.
