Urban Spelunking


This is the moment where I backed out and was quite OK with that decision, while Quinn was not as happy.


Look at all those Spider webs stuck on Quinn's Back!

Quinn , Ty and Ann debating if we can make it through the tiny opening. ( it was about a fourth of the size of the normal tunnel )


The brave group who made it. Daphne, Ann, Ian, Ty and Quinn

This weekend Ann had the great idea to go Urban Spelunking. Which really means crawling through an illegal water drain under ground. Being slightly nervous in small areas and extremely afraid of spiders I was not that excited to undertake this great adventure, but everyone is determined to make me less girlie so I thought I would give it a try. We jumped the fence and started down the hole, everything was going great until we got to a part where the mud and water had settled leaving a teeny tiny opening that you would have to get on your stomach to crawl through. As we debated if we could make it through the opening some one started to point out the hundreds of dead spiders stuck on the walls. This is where I made my exit! But the rest of the group crawled on their bellies through mud, water, and who knows what to continue on their journey. Thankfully they made it out alive and had a great time.
