"Now let's see: Which way to the cave?"
From JANUARY 10, 2010: HONEYCOMB CAVES
"I think it must be THAT way!"
"And I thought I was asking for BUD light!"
Heading down into the sink hole which contains the caves.
Jeong-Ah bravely enters into the first cave, checking to see if it is safe for Brad to come in.
Looking through the cache of bottles, trying to figure out if any are from the Japanese era.
Ready to exit the first cave.
Now we are heading down into the second cave. It has a much steeper entrance.
When we were down there in the darkness, by the light of our flashlights this seemed to look like a mighty eagle. In the photo it seems to me to appear more like an odd pinguin-dog hybrid!
Jeong-Ah discovered that if she shined her light directly into some of the travertine it gave off this ghostly glow -- with different chunks giving different hues. More in the next two photos.
TOTALLY Cool, don't you think? I've been in these caves several times, and have never even thought about trying this!
And then Brad made a pretty cool find, too.
(The word "drusy" means covered with many tiny crystals)
It is HUMID and warm down here. Hey y'all.......wait up!
Jeong-Ah had made some delectable gimbap (sort of a Korean sushi -- Brad, please correct me with a comment below if I am wrong on the name) for a picnic after the spelunking.
There was beef there, but I considered it a bit raw for my taste.
