hidden cave at Welch Creek Road
hidden cave at Welch Creek Road
I discovered this cave a few weeks ago, when I was hiking on a nearby ridge, about a mile away or so. I could see it with 10x50 binoculars, but my 3X Fuji could barely detect it. Oh My, but last week I just received my new Lumix FZ18 camera, with 18X optical zoom!! As you can see, it shows it Wonderfully!! By comparing vs nearby trees, I'm guessing that the cave is roughly 3 feet from floor to inside peak; that's probably the best guess I'll ever have, because the cave appears to be almost unreachable, given the sheer slope both sides... nevertheless, considering how clean the floor is inside the cave, I'm guessing that something manages to get there!! Cave Bears, anyone?? (no, not in California) Anyway, enjoy my new secret cave. I'm *dying* to get a closer look at it, but don't exactly want to... ummm... die to do so... ???
3 Binoculars

How did I end up with three?!?! Left to Right: Orion Giantview 15X70s, Nikon Action 10X50s and my grandfather's Hertel & Reuss Optik 7X50s. They're old and beat up and in bad need of a professional cleaning but they're a piece of HISTORY! German made...they don't make 'em like they used to!
