The Rock

Gary K. Soule of Sturgeon Bay, WI holds the historic 26 1/2 pound rock
that trapped the foot of Floyd Collins, resulting in his eventual death.

Reverse and closeup of the rock held by a Mammoth Cave park ranger.

Gary holds a glass jar of coffee still in its liquid form.
This sealed jar was actually found with the body when Floyd
was removed from Sand Cave.

These photos have been confirmed by the American Spelean History Association
of the National Speleological Society.
