Aug. 1, 2015 – Spelunking Sinks of Gandy

Photo A Day Project  - 2015 (photo by Jay Capers) Photo A Day Project  - 2015 (photo by Jay Capers)We decided to visit two caves today, the first is one I have wanted to do since I started visiting wild caves. Sinks of Gandy, it is not a technical cave, but features a river that you have to swim out of. We decided to take the dog ; )

Most of the cave was walking through larger rooms and passages.
