CAVE RIVER VALLEY RIVER CAVE

After a break outside we went up stream passing a series of nice small waterfalls till we got to the entrance of river Cave. This cave is not as long as Endless cave but the passages appeared to be larger in size.

We continue on into a duck walking section and come up to one of the longest straight line passages I have ever seen, I believe this passage is around 600 ft in length and has a stream passage to traverse through which was impressive to see. the passage started to get smaller and the water got deeper as we got towards the back of the cave. We came to a small breakdown section with formation room and eventually came up on a section where we had to squeeze through a waterfall to get to the final section of the cave. We could hear the water below us raging away but the breakdown around us prevented us from continuing. There was a spot that appeared to be a potential dig but we decided to turn back and head out of the cave.

This was a fantastic trip and a fantastic day of caving so we want to thank the DNR for allowing Restricted access to these special places. We had a blast and made sure we collected a bunch of garbage from the cave that was brought in from run off.
