This Earth’s collapse has been dubbed “The Gash”. It’s a really incredible sight.

Apparently, a wet spring lubricated across a cap rock.

Then, a small spring on either side caused the bottom to slide out.

There is approximately 15 to 20 million yards of movement and the collapse is 750 yards long and about 50 yards wide.
