Spelunking is defined as the sport or practice of exploring or studying caves. I don't believe there is a word to describe the art of building one but that is exacly what we did today. The Wilderness adventure area includes a one hundred and twenty foot network of caves under the main walkway leading into the park. It is one of many cool surprises that are there for those who take the time to look.

The cave ranges in height from three foot six up to four foot six. This means our team spent eight long hours applying the mud and then sponging things smooth - all on our knees. Despite the very hard, dirty work the crew laughed and joked through the entire day. The cave earned the name 'pit of dispair' as the day dragged on in the cramped, dark and dreary space.

There were two highlights through the day. One was the finish of the cave mudding in only one day. The second highlight was the fact that it was again WAFFLE WEDNESDAY celebrated by all at lunch break.

It has been a very busy and productive week. One more day to go before we break for the long easter weekend.
