Embryo Cave

 

Well its the long weekend of 2013 and we finally made it to the fabled Embryo Cave. Special thanks to B Wilson and M Buck for sharing this gem of a Northern Ontario cave. The spectacular 70 Meter long marble cave consists of some nice stooped over passage as well as some challenging crawl passages. Wonderfully banded marble of various colors makes for some excellent photographs. Today we found the small stream sinking into the ground just before the cave starts and then emerging again well past the cave, possibly hinting at something lower beneath the cave.

Well less chit chat, here are the pics of Embryo Cave.

We did the cave backwards, if that's possible?

A 10 second exposure and a small light makes for an interesting glow to the pic.

This was a 10 second exposure done with a small flashlight for a (somewhat) dramatic effect.

Another image of the main trunk passage of Embryo Cave, approximately 1.5 Meters high.
Not sure if my lighting created the green glow on one side and the brown on the other?
