Cave Point Cave, Richardson Bottoms, Springs of Eureka
Cave Point Cave near Mountain View deep in the Ozarks is full of cave life - including salamanders, cave spiders and crickets that don't chirp. We tag along on this venture with Dr Dave Thomas "Cave Doctor" from Lyon College. Richardson Bottoms is a rare marsh habitat in the Ouachita National Forest north of Lake Ouachita. The "healing" springs of Eureka Springs are what created the town and brought thousands of visitors during the heyday of the late 1800's. They are still a popular attraction in the 21st Century.
