Spooky Speleothems for a Saturday Scarefest

To be perfectly honest, I really detest the part of a cave tour when some teenaged guide who knows nothing of the geology goes on and on about how a particular cave decoration (speleothem) looks like a dragon or a elephant or whatever. On the other hand, the human mind has a great capacity for constructing forms and patterns out of totally random scenes. So, in honor of All Hallow's Eve I offer a picture I snapped in Lewis and Clark Caverns in Montana. I don't know about you, but I see at least one scary looking ghost and a cackling witch. What do y'all see?

Watch out for that candy coma tonight, and don't run over any trick or treaters!
