We're learning more about the giant "crack" in the earth near Ten Sleep

Yesterday we shared a reader’s photo of the giant “crack” in the earth in the Bighorns. Since then, we’ve learned a bit more about what may have caused the giant “crack” about ten miles south of Ten Sleep. SNS Outfitter & Guides Service posted a photo on their facebook page with the following information that we are working to confirm: “An engineer from Riverton, WY came out to shed a little light on this giant crack in the earth. Apparently, a wet spring lubricated across a cap rock. Then, a small spring on either side caused the bottom to slide out. [The engineer] estimated 15 to 20 million yards of movement. By range finder, an estimate is 750 yards long and about 50 yards wide.” Again, we are working to confirm this theory. #shortgo h/t Brent Christopherson
