Dewdneys Cave

I visited this Ontario maze cave many years back without the benefit of my digital camera. Needless to say when the opportunity arose to be a stand in for Mr Bucks cave photo shoot, I jumped at the opportunity to visit this cave again. M Buck and B Wilson have mapped this cave extensively in the previous decades and provided me with a laminated copy so I would not get lost if I ventured off just a bit too far. In then end the map was not needed as my time was divided by exploring various side passage and cave modeling for our photo guru M Buck. I feel I know this cave better than before, but realistically I barely dented the 1.6 plus Kilometers of mapped passage.

Special thanks as always to the land owner who gave us access to his property and the people who assisted in setting the visit up. Hope you enjoy the photos. If you have questions, comments or criticisms send me an email.
