Cath & Eva

We all had to wear helmets in the cave.  I dislike helmets in general, and disliked these especially.  That is until I hit my head so hard on an overhanging rock that my neck hurt from the impact.  I am not sure I would have been badly hurt, but at a minimum the helmet prevented a bloody bruise.  

With the helmet lights we could all see about 10 feet ahead.  At several points in the cave everyone turned their lights out and we had an opportunity to experience true, can't see your hand in front of your face, total darkness.  I am in awe of the Maya walking in and out of these caves with only burning torches.
