which are found in areas with Karst topography (like the Yucatan.)
If the water gets high enough, they can get washed downstream and
wind up in a delta. I've seen plenty in the Ozarks, for example.
They, of course, are completely natural. Is there any evidence
that these are other than 100% of natural origin?
