Caving camp
Posted By: Matjazz, 05-03-2007, 06:36 AM

Last weekend we had a sort of caving camp with sole intention to find and explore caves. I was there two days and this is what it looked like:

Can't help it but one really feels small in forest like this

This peak was high enough to offer beautiful vista down to the very Adriatic sea.

On our way back we relied on GPS. Without it we would fell very much like Hansel and Grettel.

Next day we went to descent in to the caves we found.

All caves had to be evidenced and measured.

interesting stuff.

I'm thinking of exploring some old mine shafts around here. I imagine that it's very similar to caving.

Seriously don't...

Mine shafts are about as dangerous as it gets. Here in Colorado, we've had all sorts of problems with accessing peaks due to property owners restricting access. This was caused by fears of lawsuits by idiots who ventured into old mines and got injured badly or died. A law was recent passed to relieve the land owners of this burdon, but it will take years more for the trails to open.

Unless you REALLY know what you are doing and know the history of the mine (even then I wouldn't), DON'T ever go into a mine. They are death traps.

Just my $.02

Nice shots. I really like the first two and #4... in a claustrophobic sort of way
