Day 1 - Oct 6, 2007
The cave opening is around 1 foot by 3 feet.
I took the first pictures with the camera inside a
dry bag, but they are not as clear so I gave that up.
To the left of the cave there is a crack for 20 feet or so.
The rock hanging out over the opening of the cave has a crack in it.
So I remove that rock. I have a backhoe so this was easy.
This makes it easier to get in and out of the cave.
I also remove, by hand, enough dirt and rocks from just inside so that
I can move around a bit inside.
The first chamber goes down maybe 6 or 8 feet but is only a foot high or so.
Balls are about 3 inch balls from my kids ballpit.
As we come into the first chamber there is an opening going left.
So far it is too small for a big guy like me to get through (even if
I remove the leaves and loose dirt), but I can stick a camera inside.
Opening this will be the first project.
Get a little closer and we can see there is another chamber.
This is the top left part of chamber 2. The furthest part is maybe 15 feet.
Chamber 2 has maybe 2 foot clearance most places. Maybe 8 feet wide.
I tossed some balls
toward the back and could hear them keep on bouncing after they are out of
sight. The back right keeps going down. This is a real cave!
