Snow Goff Cave


A newly discover Northern Ontario cave . We recently got back to this sinking stream that me and Mick G spotted in the summer. This time there was a small amount of water sinking as well as airflow and ice crystals showing us where to dig. A few hours of digging and we spotted the trickle of water we had be hearing all along. Rubble appears to be blocking the natural entrance to a chamber in the cliff face. A few more hours of digging and we were able to get some pics with a camera on a tripod showing a large chamber. None of the pictures show where the water is heading, but we can see lots of nice water worn rock. One more day of digging and we should be into the chamber. Good airflow and a good 100 feet of elevation change hint towards something good.
