After waiting a year, I finally did it. I made the great rappel and made it into the cave.
This year is not my first time at Natural Trap Cave. I spent about a week here last year with the intention of going in. My hopes were thwarted by an injury on the very first day.
But this year… This year I made it!
No photograph of this place can do it justice. It was simply amazing.
The hardest part, as predicted, was turning around and hanging over the edge in preparation for the rappel. Once I was seated, it was easy-peasy. The ascent wasn’t as bad as I had expected either.
As evening followed a delicious camp dinner, Mother Nature chose to grace us with some beauty.
And the final, best treat of the day…
