Sawmill Well
Chris and I visited TAG, with our good friend Aaron Moses. Here is the view from the bottom of the 155-foot open-air pit named Sawmill Well.

Solution Rift
After bouncing the pit a couple of times, we did the pull-down trip in Solution Rift. Rappels (in order) are: 24, 18, 30, 23, 167 (Confederate Well), 31 and 36 feet.

We saw a bunch of cave critters!!!

Birthday Pit
While bouncing Alabama’s Birthday Pit (185 feet) with Chris Coates, Kelton Russenberger and Jeremy Vandeventer, I found this little guy resting on an old bolt at the top of the pit.

The guys looking down the pit when we arrived.

Stephen's Gap
We took a day off from caving yesterday, as we were in pain from our 2-person Ellison’s bounce trip. Today was a light day, bouncing Stephen’s Gap at 143 feet.

I found a scorpion at the top of the drop!

Pipeside Pit
And since we walked right by Pipeside Pit (66 feet), we had to do that little one too! Found this cute lille guy at the bottom.

Flowing Stone
The first day of a week of TAG caving! The view of the quarry on Pigeon Mountain while hiking to Flowing Stone, a 227-foot deep pit, with Chris and Brad Tipton.

A famous Walker County salamander at the bottom of the pit.

Attempting a photo of the pit, but didn’t bring the proper camera, so I got this so-so image.

Ruddle Cave Dig
This is me entering Ruddle Cave to work on a digging lead.

Below is a photo of the resident cave rat, Chewy. At one point during the day, Chris was taking a nap and awoke to Chewy on his chest, looking straight at him! Chris was not happy to be surprised like that.
