Peppersauce Cave

For my Fourth of July I went to a cave!!!  I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to be at Josh's house at 5:00 a.m. so we could leave for Oracle, AZ to explore Peppersauce Cave.  

Josh & I had been to the Lava Rock Cave up in Flagstaff but he was still concerned I wouldn't like being in a cave because that cave didn't have tight spaces or mud.   This cave had a ton of small spaces and passages and it was nothing but mud and dirt.  

This is the only good picture I got inside the cave, I had to crawl and get super dirty for this picture but it was SO cool looking.  I had Josh go back with me once more before we left so I could see it again.

It was super humid inside the cave so you can see the picture getting fuzzier, Josh got in this picture somehow, he was really happy I was excited about exploring the cave.  I "dragged" him a few places. 

My shot of the two of us together, not very good, but you get the idea. . . 

The entrance/exit to the cave.  It is a very fun cave, there were pools of water inside, and one spot has a big lake and they have added a ladder to make it easier to get down. 

Me exiting.

Josh & I at the exit, he was a great caving partner, very fun and was great to compliment how cute I was even though I was filthy.

My friend Kayla!  I was so happy she came, she is the best!

I don't know if you can tell, but I am a MESS.  I have dirt/mud in my hair, all over the sleeves and hands all the way down to my shoes.  This may be TMI but when I took my panties off when I got home there was dirt on my panties too.

Josh posing for me to show how dirty he got too.

The group of us that went. 

It was seriously fun!!  I cannot wait to go caving again.   Plus the weather was awesome.  On the way home we got flooded!

We had a BBQ later at Josh's Sister-in-law's parents house.  The food was awesome, and we got a private firework show, the neighbors put on an hour long show with legit fireworks, they must have spent some serious money on them but WOW it was cool.
Happy Independence Day!
