View of the Cave Troll

By Rick Hunter 25 November 2013

My take on the journey into darkness.

Sitting here as the gatekeeper between two worlds–

The thoroughfare seems almost pedestrian from what was once perceived as an impassable barrier to time forgotten, and has now become the daily commute of only a chosen few.

Rising Star Expedition

By Steven Tucker 13 November 2013

Today, two months ago - on Friday the 13th of September, Rick Hunter and I (members of the Speleological Exploration Club) explored a remote section of the Rising Star cave system. Before we entered the cave, Rick Hunter had the following status update: "I have a good feeling this Friday the 13th. Time for fun and adventure. And of course hopefully new discoveries. All cameras are charged and lights are ready. Hammers, chisels, gloves, boots and overalls. This is a deep underground rock session." His prediction proved accurate. Whilst we had gone in search of an extension to the cave, what we did find was much more significant, hominid fossils!
