Marissa put together a trip to Catacombs on November 18, 2012. We have 10 people total for the trip. We met at the regular meeting place, and got to catch up with Danny and Annette. After chatting with them we headed over to Catacombs. Jason went ahead and graciously rigged both drops for us. Everyone got geared up their wetsuits, vertical gear, and rubber duckies. We headed in. If you haven’t been to catacombs before the gate there is very small and interesting. You enter through the gate laying on your stomach, feet first, and go right into a pretty decent size drop. The only thing holding you there is a small piece of re-barb sticking out. Jason hung out and guided everyone onto the re-barb. Once a few of us made it down both drops. We saw how high the water was! From past trips there none of us had ever saw the water so high! We knew this would be a fun and interesting trip! We spent the next few hours literally swimming around in the cave. We did quite a few ear dips in some areas. It was loads of fun! We got very lucky, if water levels had been much higher we wouldn’t have been able to go past the first room. We had a blast
swimming around and checking out all kinds of neat fossils. At the end of the day we all climbed out, wet and muddy. We had a great trip and decided to head to Olive Garden.
