The River Caves

19-11-2016

Tim, Sarah, Mia, Poppy, Tal and me

River Caves canyon was originally called the Water Tunnel by the people who first described it, Rus and Alan May and John Norris (Who built the now burnt down hut in deep pass clearing under and occupational permit back in the 40s or 50s) Apparently they didn’t like it being called River Caves but that is the name that has since stuck.

Anyhoo my original plans had fallen through so a quick text Friday night to see if anyone wanted a lazy stroll down to the River Caves got a couple of takers.

For some reason it always put me in mind of the entrance to somewhere a pirate would bury his treasure

E.Spinifer, the Giant Spiny Crayfish. No where near the size of the ones at Mt Wilson last weekend but this is my favourite colour morph. They come in a range of greens and reds and blues and blacks and can weight up to 1kg. The old tales goes if the creek flows generally east they are red and if it flows generally west they are blue
