A full day – Day 2 at Natural Trap Cave – #NTCave2017

Today was a normal day off work in the cave. Normal by cave standards, anyway.

First, was the usual rappel into the cave.

One anchor, upon which all our lives depend.

I made it, no problem, as always.

Always grinning.

I spent my day collecting a sample of a thin, charcoal-rich bed for carbon dating. It was tedious.

My desk for the day. (Sideways again)

But I did enjoy some relics from expeditions past.

Ladder to nowhere.

Tomorrow, I’m working on the surface. Lots of work to do there, too!
