Fantastic Pit at Ellison’s Cave, Georgia
Deciding which cave is the most is amazing is “like comparing seafood to pizza,” said House, the cave expert. “It kind of depends on what you’re in the mood for.”  If you’re in the mood for extreme vertical caves, then the Fantastic Pit at Ellison’s Cave is just for you. At 586 feet (179 m) deep, Fantastic Pit is the deepest freefall pit in the lower 48 United States and is big enough to hold the Washington Monument, which stands over 555 feet (169 m) tall. 
"I’ve been there about three times and every time it’s really breathtaking because of how deep it is," said photographer Manuel Beers. (Photo Credit: Manuel Beers)
