Captain Nemo heads to Pinnacle Cave

So I joined Matt Heather and Kip for another trip to Pinnacle cave. It had been a couple years since the last time I’d gone. I was excited to try out the sunpak flash in a cave.

The goal of the trip was to survey more of the cave for the map that Matt is working on.  It’s been a long time coming, some of the survey for the map is older then I am! Unfortunately I wasn’t much help as the next area to be surveyed was beyond a squeeze and I didn’t fit. Matt managed to get in with a great deal of effort, both Kip and Heather found it considerably easier to fit.

I contented myself with taking a nap and photographing some of the rest of the cave while I waited.

We emerged after dark and made our way up the short but very steep hill to the truck. Tired but we all agreed it had been a good day.
