Exploration of the Unknown

You never know what you’re going to discover in a cave. It’s not like a mountain that you can see, you know is there, you know how tall it is, you know where the summit is.

In a cave, it’s all hidden. You don’t know what’s around that next corner. You don’t know how deep that pit is. Even when you’re at the very bottom depths of a cave, you don’t know if that’s the end. There could be more passage just beyond that rock wall.

That’s what I love about caving. The exploration of the unknown.

Follow me! It goes!

Cricket Crap Cave

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold crickets: and crickets sat on me; and crickets rained upon my head: and crickets went forth defecating, and to defecate. (Revelation 6:1–2)
