The Ozark Mountains Hide Plenty of Caves
The Ozark Mountains make up a great amount of Northern Arkansas, as well as portions of Missouri, Oklahoma, and Kansas. The land includes springs, losing streams, sinkholes, and caves. Some of the rocks found in the Ozarks are hundreds of millions of years old.
The combination of mountains and caves was an attractive option for John Hay as he sought to find a safe place to build a shelter in the early ’80s with the threat of nuclear war.
