Five Springs Cave Pictures

September 29, 2001 - During the Fall VAR, held at the RASS Field Station, a group of ten cavers got together to continue survey in the newly opened Five Springs Cave. Some very interesting discoveries were made and some great passage mapped. These are images from just one survey team on that particular trip. Read the trip report for further details.
