Cave Surveying and Sketching Workshop

 Earlier in February, Carol Vesely, a renowned world-wide caver, came to Lehman Caves and gave a cave surveying and sketching workshop. The workshop was open to those attending the Lint and Restoration Camp (more coming on that soon). We started in the theater and learned/reviewed how to use compasses and inclimometers, tape measures, distos, and DistoX2s.

We had a little surveying course to practice.

We had a mix of caving experiences, from never surveying before to lots of experience surveying and some sketching.

It was fun checking to see how measurements compared with each other.

The next afternoon, we went into the cave and did some surveying and sketching. It definitely changes when you're in the cave!

You can see by the smiles that everyone had a good time. We learned a lot in a short amount of time, and I highly recommend one of Carol's workshops if you ever have the opportunity!
