Champagne & Cake in a Cave

So Saturday was Huntsville Grotto's horizontal (vertical for 4 out of 10 of us) trip to Kennamer Cave. And it was also Michelle's Birthday. Tommy packed some champagne and cups and I packed a cheesecake, candles, and silverware! Michelle thought it was a great and everyone was pleasantly surprised the glass bottle and cake made it through all the crawling at the beginning of the cave. Kennamer is really a neat cave, a bit challenging with a few interesting climbs, but its well worth it for all the pretties and Moby Dick (a breakdown rock the size of a house). I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Randy and a cool conglomerate - the other side of this is some really beautiful smooth flowstone.



Mark and some really big bacon

Look - Proof that I was actually on the trip

We were making jokes about being drunk all the way out. Funny thing is we accidentally dropped the cork down the particularly pesky climb-up.
