SERA Cave Carnival

This event definitely put the carnival back into SERA - just like CAG (the Central Alabama Grotto) was saying. Tommy, Paul, Michelle and I drove to Buck's Pocket State Park for a day of caving fun on Saturday. There was a climbing competition, vendor goodies, some really funny exhibits (CAG's Believe it or not - a great spoof on Ripley's!), a cave trip to penitentiary Pit, a midway with a big top and various acts including some animals from the Birmigham Zoo, a sword swallower, and a fire juggler. They had popcorn, balloons, a few rides, a moonwalk, and of course people walking around in wacky outfits! CAG really outdid themselves with this. Enjoy the pictures and video!

Here's Michelle climbing Penitentiary Pit - 90' sandstone Pit Saturday afternoon. The pit was about 15 minutes away from the State Park. This is my second time there, and its even prettier in the summer with all the ferns in the bottom.
