In Pictures: Spectacular stalactites at Jeita Grotto

We're pretty sure you've heard of a little body of water called the Bayof Fundy, which is facing some pretty stiff competition for inclusion inthe New Seven Wonders of Nature.

We're pretty sure you've heard of a little body of water called the Bay of Fundy, which is facing some pretty stiff competition for inclusion in the New Seven Wonders of Nature. Many of them -- the Grand Canyon, the Amazon -- are well known to most of us, but you may not have heard of Lebanon's Jeita Grotto.

Located about 20 kilometres north of Beirut, Jeita Grotto is formed by limestone caves, upper galleries and a lower cave that a river runs through.

It may be unfair to call this a dark horse candidate, but if this photo set tells us anything, it's that the Bay of Fundy could really use your vote.
