As a little kid, I wanted to go to the north pole to find Superman’s crystal castle. Who didn’t, right? Like most kids, I was deprived of that opportunity, but I did travel to Alaska a few years later. Even as a preteen, I was a bit disappointed to find nothing suggesting crystal fortresses existed in the arctic.

Turns out I was just looking in the wrong place … all along it was in Mexico!

Superman Fortress of Solitude in Mexico

This real crystal cave was located by a Mexican mining company in 2000. Some of the massive crystals are over 35 feet long, considered to be among the world’s largest. Superman would have felt right at home.

    Wow, that really rocks!!! Well, technically, I guess it resonates at a particular harmonic frequency, but that’s not as fun to say…

    What does Photoshop smell like? Same as Paint Shop Pro but more expensively.
