• Publication week for Descent 296

    'Having just come back from expedition jetlagged and pushed for time, I thought adding eight extra pages to Descent would be the best way to get back into the swing of things. I hope you'll all find that the extra hours were well spent'.

Has anybody got any information or experience with The Millerton Caves in California?
Apparently they are carved from granite and are very wet/active.

I was wondering if somebody on this forum might have been in the past or know of anybody who has caved in this area of California?
:-\

On reflection - A top cave!  (y)

Very unusual to be inside granite, however apart from that it was just like any other vadose stream canyon. The walls were extremely smooth, like glass. In appearance the walls looked just like granite or marble with typical light and dark speckles.

Thanks to those of you that helped with photo links.

;) - I guess he's referring to granite/marble kitchen work tops.

They do look good, remarkably clean.
