Hike 2: カバの洞窟 Hippopotamus Cave


約8.5 km (5.3 miles) 700feet 標高差の簡単なハイキング。 St George の南にギャップ (Gap = 裂け目、まさに断層で亀裂が起きた部分) という場所があります。その右側をギャップに沿って歩いていくと洞窟があります。It was an easy hike, 5.3 miles and 700 feet elevation gain. You can find Hippo’s cave after a 2-3 mile walk along the Gap in St. George UT.

洞窟内部で見つけた不思議な物体。We found a strange object in the cave.

「コウモリのフンが固まった物?」「古い木の樹液?」小さなカケラを洞窟の外に持ち出して観察しましたが未だに謎です。”Could it be bat droppings?” “Or could it be old tree sap?” etc. Although we observed a piece of it outside of the cave, it’s still unknown.

ギャップの崖の上から南方の景色。今度はこの下のルートを歩きます。Looking down the southern direction from the cliff. We will be hiking the trail down below in a week.
