Lost Creek Cave Trip

From my earliest caving days, I've always been eager to introduce my friends to the underground world. One of these early excursions took us to Lost Creek Cave, which, at the time, was owned by the Rylander Family. Thankfully, they were very generous with granting access.

The trip consisted of myself, Alexis Lienhart, Brian Herron, and Terry Steadman. It was a simple trip to the waterfall room, which Brian photographed. On this trip I also found and explored a tight side passage that was several hundred feet of tight crawling.

This adventure also marked the first time I witnessed the fascinating steam plume emerging from the Ben White entrance. This natural phenomenon occurs as cold air sinks into the lower entrance, warms up, and then rises through the upper entrances in the form of warm, moist air spouts. Nature's surprises are always intriguing.
