The northern portion of the province is a most formidable place, the blackflies are abominable, mosquitoes – intolerable and the horse flies – absolutly terrifying! It was under this ferocious assult that we found ourselves wading down a remote river in search of likely karst features.
The river was our easiest route of travel. My cave-hunting partner floated along with his waterproof “Swaygo Cave Pack”. I stumbled “in pursuit” holding my very un-waterproof camera high and picking a less watery route. In this picture, I squat on a large, flat slab of marble, its surface smooth in places, intensely scalloped in others. You will notice the window worn into the rock to the far left of the picture and also the enlargened joint that cuts diagonally across in front of me. Fortunatly the water was unusually warm and as always the scenery – stunning.
