About Warsaw Caves Falls

I've only been to this site twice, and each time it was bone dry. This is probably common, because I'm pretty sure that the river is flowing underneath the rocks. There are a number of caves at Warsaw, at least seven of which are large enough for visitors to crawl or even stand in. In cave country, the limestone rock is fractured, jointed and widened due to solution. Weak carbonic acid in rain water very slowly dissolves away the limestone. Streams can "disappear" altogether into the subsurface, and then re-appear downstream. This waterfall does flow from time to time, when stream discharge is simply too high to be entirely directed below ground.
