Ramshorn Cave

Lucas, Anna and I went looking for the Ramshorn Cave and we found it! 

Us chilling in the Dragon's Layer listening to Radiohead.

If you ever find these little cars, you were in an alien landscape ~4 hours underground. On my 5th visit to the cave, Lucas' 13th?, I found the Rappel pit that Lucas came back and rappelled 200ft down. The map shows 3 tunnels leading from this bottom lake cavern with question marks. I dont think Lucas will ever want to go back down that pit to investigate where those chambers go. Imagine rappelling hundreds of feet down a claustrophobic, twisting, worm hole in the dark by yourself with loose blocks falling down before your feet creating eerie noises as it bounces its way down and down and down...

Tobacco Roots: Hollowtop Lake and Potosi Peak

Some winter backpacking in the roots! 

Nothing like a frozen left-over Brat to warm ya up!
