Found a Couple of Deadheads

Recommended Posts

So I found a cave up on the Rim and had some gear and decided to rap in.

Once you check in you can never leave (although the Eagles are the most overrated band ever)

The bigger one was mostly decomposed and didn't smell anymore so it had been a while. The smaller one was pretty much just bones.

So did they fall in there or get drug in there?

Is that up up by Pine?  I've been down the one by there.  That is a rough way to go.

They would have fallen. It is about 30 feet down and it is sheer rock all the way around. I doubt a cat would be able to climb out, and the one that was decomposed was still pretty much whole and not eaten on.

This is the main room to the cave. You can see the light coming in at the entrance. Someone put a log there to use as a ladder to access it. The deer were a further back in the cave.

That's the coolest deadhead story I think I've ever heard.  Very cool finds and those are solid bucks to boot! 

Are you big into spelunking? What other cool stuff have you found?
