A friend and I had visited a small local cave today to enjoy its beauty and hopefully examine the area and locate other likely caving spots. Following up a densely wooded valley there were signs of slumping rock and an old stone construction along the valley wall. We soon abandoned this course of action as it was not as fufilling as photography in the cave. It is such an incredible spot that the explorations away from the cave become harder to justify as your distance from the tunnels increases.
Having visited here on several previous occasions I had always regretted not paying better attention to the rock and was excited to find the diverse and beautiful metamorphic striations through which we were exploring. It is a change to the typically sedimentary nature of Ontario’s cave strata.
