Spelunking is something I had never tried until last year, and it was such a crazy adventure. In case anyone is unfamiliar with spelunking, it is known as the sport of cave exploring. I have never tried spelunking before because I wasn’t really sure that it was something I was interested in trying. I’m not extremely fond of tight spaces, darkness, or of bats. However, when my best friend said he wanted someone to go on a spelunking expedition with him, I knew I had to go for him.
The expedition was already arranged by my friend, and it was perfect timing. We were there in mid-May and I learned that the bats that make their homes in the caves had vacated recently. They stay in the caves during hibernation season and leave as the weather warms.
