Today was another cave day for me. Most likely, it was the last cave day for this season for me. I’m leaving in a few days and have a few research items to pursue on the surface before heading out. (I’ll describe those in future posts.)
But the cave is a wonderful place. And as it happens, Natural Trap Cave has its heroes too. We ran out of toilet paper in the cave yesterday, but were rescued this morning by Toilet Paper Man. Who else could so boldly wear toilet paper on his head?
Once we were rescued from a frightening lack of TP, we set about our daily work.
I found another tooth today. This one is likely a Bison.
I could kick myself for not photographing my discovery highlight of the day. But I didn’t, so whatever. But I did find a metatarsal (foot bone) of the extinct American lion, which I think is pretty darn cool. Dont’ worry, photos were taken, just not by me.
Tomorrow is a surface day. This includes screen washing and rock collecting (and possibly snake dodging). It also includes having to actually wear sunscreen. Now, won’t that be crazy?
