Woodland WA, Upper Ape Cave

Tomorrow Jared and Jen arrive with Allie (our granddaughter) to visit for a week.  I am so excited!  There will be Allie pictures soon!

The Upper Ape Cave was a lot more fun because it was a lot more challenging.  We did a lot of rock scrambling and had to scale an 8ft wall.  I could not see all the color in the rock while we were down there.  Fortunately the colors showed up in the pictures, amazing!  It was a lot of fun.  As soon as we left the cave, we were taking clothes off as fast as possible.  The temp inside was 42 and the temp outside was 80ish!!

I had to ask Felicia and Mike to look down so I could take a pic without their headlamps blinding me!

I did not blur the pic, what you see is condensation on my lens as I take a pic of the exit from the outside

you would never know the cave was in the middle of those rocks!
