U is for Underground
Ah, yes, caving in Grade Six.
We had learned all about the limestone cycle and about stalagmites and stalactites, so for our camping trip that year we had to experience it all first hand.
Cave exploration is not for the weak of heart, or weak of body. It is very strenuous, and some of the small crevices and rock ledges were, well, shall we say, a bit of a tight squeeze for this old girl.
However, I did it! and when I had hoisted myself up the last ledge of a waterfall we were climbing I heard my class singing a Gregorian chant in this gorgeous limestone cavern.
It was heaven, or at least what I imagine heaven to be.
