SUICIDE CAVE

Suicide Cave, Indiana
I woke up super early so I could make it to Richard Pagels house and meet up with him so we could carpool and drive out to south central Indiana to go on a caving trip.  There are hundreds of cave systems just in Indiana alone so I was so excited to finally be going on my first Indiana trip!

We met up with a few other people including Tom Campbell and headed to the parking spot for Suicide Cave. We the cave itself got its name from a guy that committed suicide almost 100 years ago from a police chase.  We unlocked the cave and entered the which was a beautiful entrance.  We locked ourselves in so nobody else could get in and we headed into the cave.

The cave was about a half mile to the end of the system and consisted of a meandering dry passage with some interesting challenges and a lot of formations at the end of the cave.

We took a few side canyon routes to continue to check out the cave which was also an interesting view.  I was fascinated to see slot canyons and beautiful formations everywhere!!!

We finally made it to the end of the cave and had lunch.  Afterwards we started to head back out of the cave and saw some more interesting artifacts as we left.

We headed out of the cave and were out in around 6 hours from when we started. WOW !!! I can get into this for sure!! I am so happy that this is only four hours from Chicago!!
