A Return to Fulford, part 2
by Stormy on June 21, 2008

There is a lot to do in Fulford Cave. One day is never enough.

On Saturday morning we ventured to Fulford Cave. The morning started out warm, promising a very hot day. We were all looking forward to spending the day in a miserably cold, wet cave. We first climbed high on Craig Peak to look out over the Brush Creek Valley. It was a long hike, but if nothing else, it was well worth it for the view. We stopped off at the Fulford Shelter Cave, which has a magnificent opening, right out of the classic tales, but goes absolutely nowhere. Then it was on to Fulford. We explored the cave's middle section, then proceeded to the upper levels and finished our trip with the miserably cold stream passage at the bottom level of the cave. We saved the worst for last. The cave, as always, is a lot of fun. There are some challenging sections and there are some places where you stop and just don't want to go any further because you're trying to absorb the view. We spent six hours in the cave, right through the hottest part of the day. We finished the day with a little unsuccessful cave hunting on the north slopes of Craig Peak before returning to our camp site for the night.

Fulford is still a very active, developing cave.
