COLOMBINE PIT, UTAH



Colombine Pit, Utah
 We went back up tot he Unita Mountains to get away from the city a bit and visit another cave in the area. This cave is a 30ft drop that slopes into a room and ends with no passage to be found.

 At 10,100ft., this cave is the highest in Utah which had some nice views of the alpine flowers blooming.

 The drop itself was around 30ft and for some reason there was a ladder just below the entrance for the gold diggers to get down to see if there is some mystery gold at the bottom

 There is no Spanish gold in this cave or any of the other caves in this area so please keep these natural features in pristine condition and leave the caves the way you find them.

 The cave can be seen from the road at it has a bit of a larger entrance but ends quickly after you get into the cave itself.

 The rock does seem a bit different than some of the other caves in the area as it appears to be more of a solutional cave with no hypogenic properties.

 We got down and took some photos but there was not much more to do so we came back up and enjoyed the topside a bit more.

 I de rigged everything and we left the area to search for another cave that we were not able to find.

 This area is truly a beautiful place and we are looking forward to going back there in the near future.

 I wish someone would pull that ladder out of the pit and get rid of it as it is not needed in there at all and considered pollution.
