    My wife was not brave enough so today I headed out by myself to explore the Scenic Caves at Collingwood. It was pretty slippery but I made it through ok and it was a pretty good work out.

    I got a workout just looking at the stairs/hills! The views were worth it, apparently, and I know how much you wanted to get out for a hike. Really nice series.

    These are cool man. I have not been there in years. Do they still have that cave...I think it was like a refrigeration place. It was colder then a grave down in there. Nicely captured Airic.

    Ha, yes, it is called the Ice Cave. It was pretty darn cold in there today. The rocks were really slippery so i did not venture to far in to any of the caves. It is a really cool place and worth the visit.

    I would definitely have gone down there with you, had I been in any way closer. Looks like THE place to explore. Wow. Coolest.
    I love the first one that has us looking down to where you were then headed. All the moss-green ... pure eye-candy for my eyes :D. Slippery or not ... I would have loved to be there and explore!

    Hey Ray, I wear the glasses on and off depending on my mood. I have a pair for distance and a pair reading, old age I guess. I find my eyes get really tired when I’m driving if I don’t where them.

    The Scenic Caves are really interesting and I highly recommend them.

    I like all the shots but the "face in the rock shot" is very nice! I only wonder if I would have found it in the photo myself..I read it first :scratch:

    :) There was a big yellow sign right above it pointing it out for me. I don't think I would have spotted it either.

    Great cave shots! Love the enclosed feeling you get from them.
