2 Dogs Cave

Special thanks to the cavers who shared this long known but little visited cave location. As well special thanks to the friendly land owners who gave us access to explore this gem of a marble cave. Naturally all I will give out is a general location of Northern Ontario. The pictures show the exploration from the downstream end and working our way back upstream using various entrances along the way. The cave has everything from slither to crawl and a fair bit of standing passage as well as a few chambers. The marble is very banded and of various colors from white in the lower end to a blackish rock in the upper end. Going by the map we were given there should be 100s of meters of a maze passage. Since the old name of the cave would reveal the location we decided to name the cave for the two friendly dogs on the property.
