She gave us the basic directions of how to get there and said, "If you come to a part that looks like you are about to drive off the edge of the earth, you have gone too far."
We found that part. :)
(This picture does not do it justice. It really does look like you are going to drop straight down!)
We turned around.
At first we thought this lovely little overhang was the cave.
So we enjoyed the view for a while.
But there was more!
This lovely little window...
had a beautiful view!
I adored this tree, and how it adapted to the situation it was given.
So inspiring, and simply beautiful.
There were two entrances to the "main" cavern -
Up and through...
or down and through.
We tried them both.
I had to take the camera bag off in order to fit through, but I made it!
I didn't get many pictures of deeper inside the cave. I don't have fancy enough equipment for that! There was a good bit of water, several neat little tunnels, and an unfortunate amount of trash.
Canaan "discovered" a part that Daddy didn't fit in, and Mommy wouldn't try to fit in. He got deep enough in that I couldn't see his light anymore! Fortunately for the sanity of mommy, there was a spider blocking the way and he came back. I am sorry that he inherited that fear from me, but this one time I was glad for it!
Just a few hundred feet away was another cave,
but it wasn't open for exploring.
So I made my boys enjoy a few flowers instead.
I love my boys.
I love their daddy.
I love the adventures we discover, right around the corner, every day.
Life is a little crazy sometimes, but life is good.
Enjoy your adventures my friends!
