Shihua Cave III


Delicate stalactites.


I think they called these formations "stone shields."

A dragon in stone. I had to photograph this because I am a dragon.

A stone dog.

However this was first described to us, I now think it looks like a stone giant resting his left arm on a big piece of rock.

Lanzhi is admiring the beautiful columns made from stalactites and stalagmites fusing.

Our guide is leading us into the largest of the halls that we saw. Note the huge stone columns on the right.
