We were fortunate again. This weekend we investigated a picture that we’d seen on the internet. This in place of our anticipated trip to Wasteland Waterway to begin mapping. We had anticipated rain today. You do not want to be in Wasteland Waterway when it rains – you will drown.
As we had seen on the internet, there was this waterfall with a promising looking slot at it’s base that apparently led off underground. We never even checked the slot that we’d come to see as there was this much more obvious hollow.
Looking up the passage in this hollow we realized that the formations were too delicate to allow us passage, but still it was a beautiful thing to see. This cave seems to have formed in the cavity between an undercut cliff edge beside a stream and the tufa (yes I know we called it Travertine Cave) that poured down like a curtain to enclose it.
See a short video of the entrance to the cave here … Travertine Cave – a newly discovered Ontario Cave.
