Abercrombie Caves

The Abercrombie Caves, contained within the Abercrombie Karst Conservation Reserve, are a series of limestone arch caves that are located in the Central West region of New South Wales, Australia. The caves are renowned for their karst qualities, namely the formation, eroded by water action that has developed from a sinkhole to become a blind valley. Several good examples of crayback formations exist in both entrances; the 1,434-hectare reserve is situated 75 kilometres south of Bathurst and 125 kilometres north of Goulburn, near the small village of Trunkey Creek. The caves are registered as a natural heritage site on the Register of the National Estate for its large diversity of karst morphological and sedimentological features. Camping in the reserve is permitted, with sixty campground sites and two cottages; the caves are open seven days a week during school holidays. The most popular feature of the Abercrombie Caves is The Archway – the largest natural arch in the southern hemisphere. Within The Archway cave is the gold miners dance platform built in January 1880 by gold miners, replacing a platform built in the 1860s, the 1880s platform is still used for performances to this day including the annual Carols in the Caves performance.

Other caves within the reserve are King Solomon's Temple, Cathedral Cave, Grove Cave, the Bushranger's Cave. It is believed that a tourist party visited the caves in 1834 but the Caves were not'officially' discovered until 1842 by Surveyor W. R. Davidson. Surveyor Wells discovered the Koh-i-noor, Long Tunnel, Cathedral caves and the Hall of Terpsichore in 1843. Explorer William Wentworth and Governor Charles Fitzroy visited Abercrombie Caves in 1844, it is believed. The earliest known is the Ribbon Gang who used the caves in 1830. Gold was discovered in the area in 1854. A gold exploration community was established at Mount Gray, just above the caves. Miners from many of the surrounding communities would visit the caves for recreation; the caves were known as Burragylong Caverns and during the mining period they became known as Abercrombie caves. Vandalism occurred in the early days when many pieces of white marble were carted away by the visitors as souvenirs and the miners damaged many of the formations by firing rifles at them.

Some graffiti name carvings can still be seen inside the caves from the 19th century period. List of caves in New South Wales Protected areas of New South Wales Abercrombie Caves at nationalparks.nsw.gov.au

University of Montana

The University of Montana is a public research university in Missoula, Montana. UM is its second largest campus. UM reported 10,962 undergraduate and graduate students in the fall of 2018; the University of Montana ranks 17th in the nation and fifth among public universities in producing Rhodes Scholars. The University of Montana has 11 Truman Scholars, 14 Goldwater Scholars and 40 Udall Scholars to its name. An act of Congress of February 18, 1881 dedicated 72 sections in Montana Territory for the creation of the University. Montana was admitted to the Union on November 8, 1889, the Montana Legislature soon began to consider where the state's permanent capital and state university would be located. To be sure that the new state university would be located in Missoula, the city's leaders made an agreement with the standing capital of Helena that Missoula would stay out of the bidding for the new capital and would support Helena over its leading competitor, Anaconda; the cities' bids were supported by the rival "Copper Kings," William A. Clark and Marcus Daly, respectively.

Missoula won the legislative vote for the new university at the Third Montana Legislative Assembly in February 1893. The University was formally opened in 1895. While plans for a university campus were progressing, classes were temporarily held at nearby Willard School; the South Missoula Land Company, owned by A. B. Hammond, Richard Eddy and Marcus Daly, joined with the Higgins family in donating land for the new campus. In June 1898 the cornerstone for A. J. Gibson designed University Hall was laid and Missoula became "the University City." The University of Montana comprises eleven full colleges and schools: College of Humanities & Sciences. A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation; the Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences is divided into five academic departments and the Institute of Educational Research and Service. In 1914, the University of Montana School of Law became a member of The Association of American Law Schools and in 1923, the School received accreditation from the American Bar Association.

The W. A. Franke College of Forestry and Conservation offers five undergraduate majors and five Master's of Science and three PhDs. For the fall 2017 term, 6,182 students applied to the University of Montana. Ninety-three percent were accepted; the entering freshman class had an average high school GPA of 3.55, the middle 50% range of SAT scores were 540-650 for reading and writing, 520-620 for math, while the ACT Composite range was 21–26. The original plan of the University campus was designed by one of its first professors, Frederich Scheuch, who called for the central oval to be surrounded by immediate and future University buildings. Although Scheuch's plan called for all building entrances to face the center of the Oval, forming a radiating building pattern, buildings were constructed with three-story in the Renaissance Revival style, with hipped roofs and Spanish green roof tiles; the first set of buildings were set up around the oval in 1895. Since that time, various campus plans and architectural styles have been used.

Today the campus consists of 220 acres and is bordered to the east by Mount Sentinel and the north by the Clark Fork River. The main campus comprises 64 buildings, including nine residence halls and various athletic venues, including Washington–Grizzly Stadium, a 26,500-seat football stadium and the Adams Center, a 7,500-seat multi-purpose arena where the university's basketball teams play. Landmarks include: The OvalA 3 acres swath of grass running east to west, marking the traditional center of the university. Today it is divided into quadrants by two intersecting brick-laid paths, though the oval was solid grass and forbidden to be crossed by students. A double row of trees was planted around the oval on Arbor Day 1896, but many of the trees have since died and are in the process of being replanted; the original gravel driveway that once surrounded the Oval has been replaced by sidewalk. The original master plan of the university called for all buildings to face the center of the oval, but this plan proved difficult and a new plan was created in 1935.

On the western extreme of the Oval is a life-sized grizzly bear statue created by ceramic artist and sculptor Rudy Autio in 1969. The bronze statue took one year to create. Many photographs of the university picture the bear with the Oval, University Hall, Mount Sentinel's'M' in the background; the "M" trailA 3/4 mile long trail with 13 switchbacks that rises 620 feet from the University of Montana at the base of Mount Sentinel. The trail offers sweeping views of the city below. There is debate of. Around 1908, members of the Forestry Club forged a zigzag trail up the mountain and students carried up stones to shape the symbol of the University of Montana. Made of whitewashed rocks and only measuring 25 feet by 25 feet, the first "M" was poorly constructed and replaced by a wooden "M" in 1912, which cost $18; that "M," unlike today's "M," stood upright on the face of Mount Sentinel. A larger wooden version of the "M" was built in 1
