Here you can see our meanderings...we took the, umm... "scenic route" to finding the cave. By that I mean, we went straight up the mountain and across a couple ravines before we finally gave up and headed back down, at which point we found the cave maybe 30 meters from where we started.
|Fall colors in March?|
|As we are coming down...oh THERE it is!|
I'm actually proud of myself. I am a bit claustrophobic and I was worried that I would get in there or half-way in and have a freak-out. Almost backed out but pep-talked myself, "you can do hard things...it will be worth it." I took a deep breath and closed my eyes and quickly shimmied myself inside. The payoff was immediate and well worth pushing through my fear. These pictures don't come close to doing it justice because they were taken using an iPod and a flashlight. lol
|Opens up big enough to stand|
|Glassy yellow deposits on the wall - minerals? Bacteria excrement?|
|Green deposits on wall|
|Coming out took a lot more wiggling, but was less scary than going in. :P|
