Buggytop Cave trip

Originally uploaded by kelstew
Yesterday I went on a hiking/caving trip to Buggytop Cave, in the South Cumberland near Sewanee. It's a two-mile hike to a bluff; if you look over the edge, you can see Crow Creek running 150 feet below. From there you descend to the creek and into Buggytop Cave, which is a fairly easy cave - not much crawling, but a fair amount of breakdown. You can do what we did, which is come out via another entrance and take a different route to the top of the bluff. It was a nice day for a hike, not too hot, and the wildflowers were hitting their peak. This photo of your friend and mine, the brown bat, was taken by the guy who organized the trip.
