A day of spelunking

The kids and I did the 3/4 mile hike into the Ape cave, lava tube today. It’s a childhood favorite of mine! Pitch black with an icy breeze, it’s an unusual adventure.

There is a longer, more difficult path but no way the kids can make that trip yet. Actually, they might be able to do it but I couldn’t climb up and down all the rock piles with Simon on my back.

After 1.5 miles over 1.5 hours (yeah, we’re slow!) the first signs of natural light streaming through the mouth of the cave is such a thrill for the kids. 🙂
