Join Leela Hutchison as she takes you on a rare and exclusive adventure as one of the earliest explorers in January of 2001, into an alien world right here on Earth and considered one of the most hostile environments with temperatures reaching 128 degrees; a human can perish in less than thirty minutes while in these caverns. She will discuss why scientists from around the world have visited this magical Crystal Palace far below the earth’s surface and what they found.
Leela Hutchison is a Graduate Gemologist, explorer, researcher and author of the giant selenite crystals of Mexico. She is the first American woman to explore the deadly crystal caves of Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico seven years earlier than teams brought in by National Geographic or NASA in 2008. Born in El Paso, Texas, she spent her summers exploring near White Sands Missile Range and Roswell and the Sierra Blanca mountains of New Mexico. She is an avid hiker of the southwest deserts in the US. Her research and rare first images to come out of the initial exploration of the giant crystal caves has been presented in cities of the US, Mexico and Europe. Leela has also been interviewed on several radio shows and a recently filmed interview with Mexico’s top leading Ufologist, Jaime Maussan, in Mexico City. Her latest findings were recently presented to the Museum of Natural History of Los Angeles in September of 2017.
