Who's digging within Santa Cruz County, CA?

Postby TorukoIshiBravo2Zulu » Nov 2, 2019 1:55 am

Several locations are present where caves were discovered or rediscovered. Vanished River was my first in 1962 which today
is known as White Moon Cave. Adjacent to Miners Cave with cliff entry that killed a female explorer, before 1967. It housed an
empty dynamite case and a rusty steel cable to assist interior climbing. Digging which included karst mountaineering attended hikes to limestone mining ruins located outside Felton, CA. Before all buildings were dismantled for their thick-cut Redwood lumber. Stacks of furnace fuel yet stand opposite a shut adit and source oi seasonal water flow. Vertical dig into tunnel may occur outside entry to existing lime kilns. In the dry season to avoid underground swimming? My copy of CAVES OF CALIFORNIA failed to mention all the caving areas I utilized before 1983.
