October 2020 Landowner Trips

Report by Rick Hines

10/19/2020

Four of the five landowner 2020 trips took place October 10 and 11. The fifth trip went in the following Saturday, Oct 17. All five trips went well and hopefully furthered the CCC’s goal to expand awareness within the community of the amazing cave system below their land, that we believe needs to be protected and conserved. The trips visited Angel Pool passage, Thunder Falls, and Carroll passage. read more

The permit was under Dan Lamping’s name but due to a last minute injury he was unable to participate.

We entered the cave on Saturday morning having everyone at the bottom of the hole by 10am.
Our objectives were to fix the tie-in of UL1 and mainstream, check a couple of things noted on the field notes, and then head upstream to the Round Room to get some better sketches, and add a cross section through the room. read more
