    Desert hiking/Limestone cave pt. 2

    Some of these pics are blurry because some extremely rude people kept bumping into me or my tripod. Some kid tripped on my tripod and totally ate it, and his dad just started laughing. That made my day ;D. I tried to sharpen some of the pics and they still look like garbage, but they're better than they were with the atrocious blur.




    One of my favorite pics:




    I think this may have been inside a hole too:








    Popcorn looking wall:


    This strange formation was just kind of "floating" out there:




    Sorry for the blur






    This may have been in another one of those holes:




    And lastly, my absolute fav:

    Awesome pictures. I'm glad that kid who tripped on your tripod didn't get impaled by a stalagmite. I love caves. How deep did they go underground?

    I think the deepest we went was 250m. We wanted to do a $20 4 hour long tour (theres 3 diff ones I think), but they had all been sold out for weeks. I think I might call tomorrow and make reservations for the earliest possible for one of the good tours and go back soon. One of the tours requires repelling down 100m or so before you even start.

    ...unless the rope snapped, the person was impaled by a stalagmite in the upper thigh which contracted gangrene , but managed to survive by drinking bitter tasting water before dying a painful death due to starvation 2 weeks later.

    Nice pictures. I would feel uneasy going into a cave/cavern. Anyone ever see The Descent?
