Photographer's Note

This place is called Great America.
This is a great place. We even went down this canyon and swimed a little though the water was too cold.

There were many many Solvay mines at this place. They are a very sad part of Czech Republic because a lot of political prisoners worked and died there.

People called it America because several years ago a lot of 'campers' went there. It became popular and czechs called it America as camping is popular in the USA and there are a lot of canyons there.
But now this place is closed. It is supposed to be dangerous there. But climbers and tourists continue going there though some of them die there from time to time.

I would thanks anyone who can give more comments on this place as I know too little.
