After an exciting day of mining for gem stones, exploring abandoned mines in the West desert, and squeezing into some tight places, we camped in a Team Death Punch hot spot for midnight cave swimming. The water level in this gurgling cavern was the highest we had seen.After exploring the cave we cooked brats (wrapped in pillsbury croissant dough – bad idea) over a fire with our feet in the upper hot spring pool, drank our favorite drinks and laughed under the stars. In the morning we went back into the cave and took these shots. Then we took the long way around Notch Peak and through Death Canyon in search of some Trilobite fossils. The hunt was successful.
