The twin entrances to Russell Cave, Jackson County, Alabama.
The large entrance shelter is at right; a boardwalk prevents erosion and damage. A portion of the sheltered area was excavated to a depth of 40 feet, showing artifacts from human use all the way down. Dry Creek runs into the entrance at left, and showing the current stream bed to be a good 20 feet lower than the current cave floor in the sheltered, dry area.
