Exploring a Lava Tube


"Ape Cave" is the longest continuous lava tube in the continental United States.








Here is Kal'el learning more about the eatable and non-eatable plants.


























 

Leif scouted ahead and decided it was a little too dangerous for a few kids and a pregnant lady.

We weren't prepared with enough warm clothing, light and equipment to travel the whole way.


 BUT we will be back. This will be a great future quest!




Here are some more cool pictures of the cave:
