Our survey objective was the CR5 side passage in the Carroll River arm. We also wanted to get some photos in the vicinity of the CR5 side lead. It’s not the most beautiful part of the cave, but it is impressive river trunk passage that goes and goes with deep, soupy, and sticky mud in the stream channel. CR5 is downstream (towards the entrance) of Paradise Passage (CR3) and Trunk-in-the-Junk (CR4), but a good ways upstream of The Turnpike. Our plan was to have Josh and Derik do the photo work, and Dan, Joe, and I would survey. read more
