Golden dome cave

It's hard to show depth in these caves, but I think you can make out the back of the tunnel where it curves away to the right. The ceiling here is about 5-feet so we were both hunched over, stepping over loose rocks and gravel. Up ahead it got even smaller and I basically had to crawl. Then we just sat and turned off the flashlights for a few minutes. Such stillness I've never felt before. Absolute darkness and silence. It was awesome and truly humbling.
