is all about excursions in the countryside including caving and digging trips, walks and thoughts.

The main purpose of the trip was to check-out the current state of the dig in Chamber 20. After the recent rain, I wasn't surprised to find that the dig was still underwater.

But, I did take the opportunity to spend some time admiring some of the fine formations that can be seen in this cave passage.These formations are formed by the precipitation of carbonate that is in solution in water, the energy of water can also lead to natural sculpting of the rock.
