Earth is rich in amazing geological features. All over our blue planet, we can find incredible examples of the magical workings of Mother Nature. But she isn't the only one who can pull off some pretty astounding feats.
We have here a collection of six deep - I'm talking incredibly deep - holes from all over the world. And they are not all naturally occurring. Some are a testament to the genius of man's engineering. Others stand as undeniable evidence of the infinite possibilities found in nature. Both beautiful and fascinating. Enjoy!

Dean's Blue Hole, Long Island, Bahamas

Can you guess why this geological feature is called a "blue hole"? The entrance to this, the deepest saltwater blue hole in the world, is underwater. At 660 ft. deep, Dean's Blue Hole is almost twice as deep as any other.

Mount Baldy Sink Hole, Indiana

This 11 feet deep sink hole is just one of several that are appearing around the Mount Baldy Sand Dune near Lake Michigan. A child was even swallowed by one in 2011. He was rescued from the pit after three long hours.

Ice Cube Neutrino Observatory Hole

This incredible hole is 1.5 miles deep, and it is only one of 86 around the world. A man-made feature, these holes are dug using heated pipes that burn their way through Antarctic ice. They are part of the South Pole Telescope and are used by researchers to observe elusive neutrinos.

Great Blue Hole, Belize

Famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteau made this 407 ft. deep hole famous when he named it one of the top diving sites in the world. If you're the adventurous type, you can sign up for a diving tour of this one.

Glory Hole, Monticello Dam, California

Another man-made marvel, this unique drainage system is 304 ft deep and can drain away approximately 48,000 cubit feet of water per second. You do not want to be around this thing when they open the flood gates.

Guatemala City Sinkhole

This 100 ft. deep sinkhole opened up in Guatemala City's Zona 2 in 2010, swallowing up a three-story building. Not what I call prime real estate.
