Caving Margaret River 2008
Posted on 13 Feb 2008 |
With Jon away, Jude joins Alex, Eve and Quentin on a trip with Ian and Cameron to the caves in Margaret River. A fantastic weekend with a big tiger snake in our hut feasting on the rats, I am happy we slept outside under the stars!
We visit 5 caves: Bridal, Dingo and I forgot the other names. Bridal was the one with the abseil and big ascend. Dingo was the one where we entered through an awesome chimney and played around getting lost in and around the big boulders. So much fun! The last cave on the Sunday was the one with the creek flowing through which meant on our knees through the mud and even at one point on our bellies!

don’t eat too many pies before you go caving…
so thin they are translucent
different style cave, this time lots of mud
and very low passages

bit muddy, but so much fun!
we found a frog in the cave, probably loving all the mud
