The end is nigh – #NTCave2017

It’s possible that today was my last day ever in Natural Trap Cave. It makes me sad. Whatever. We still had fun.

The day started with this giant caterpillar.

Then in we went, and started cleaning up.

We did some glowing, like all good scientists do.

Then we rigged things up to haul out.

While the hauling was happening, I explored some of the cave formations present.
