I thought I would share my list of potential cave projects for 2006.

1. Continue cave restoration (mainly graffiti removal) and improving long-term management for Bloomington Cave

2. Explore the caves of Tony Grove (and Logan Canyon)

3. Pursue management agreements with the Utah State Trust Lands

4. Complete the map of Lehman Caves

5. Organize a Lehman Cave Lint Camp

6. Recon of Great Basin National Park deep cave potential

7. Ridgewalk the Red Wall Limestone exposure in Grand Wash Wilderness Area within Parashuant National Monument

8. Rejuvenate the survey of Bloomington Cave

9. Establish local fund raising for cave conservation and management projects

10. Create a collaborative effort to create an educational Caves of Utah film.


Anyone has strong interest in helping in any or all of these projects, please show your strong interest.

Have interest. Don't have time to spearhead anything right now. New jobs are tough like that.

Let me know if you need extra people for anything that is possible in springtime over a weekend or something. At the very least I have lots of experience walking around semi-aimlessly. Looking for caves would at least give me a purpose. Smile

Summer I will plan on doing some stuff up in Tony grove. At the very least I have to finish up the resurvey of Thundershower.

I will be finished with by BS in geology this fall and have been thinking about doing some kind of cave related senior project for awhile now. One of my ideas has been to determining the deep or long cave potential of the house range, but the great basin would be interesting too. Of course I would have to narrow things down a little since this would be a Senior project and not masters thesis. So I am up for any ideas or suggetions.

IMO the best guy to talk to would be Dale Green as he's done a lot of ridgewalking and projects in that area.

In 1985 I started walking northward from Marjum Pass covering every ridge, valley, and slope with binoculars. Most of what I found is published in the Salt Lake Grotto Technical Notes and in the guidebook from our Utah Cave-in in the House Range a few years ago. The potential is still high if you want to dig in immense quantities of rat crap. I recommend high explosives and wait a few days for the dust to settle. I covered the 25 miles from Marjum Pass to the northern tip, with a few exceptions.

Not much was done in the south part, the Notch Peak section. Cursury recons never showed many holes worth walking to for the effort. But, you never know.

I have been in a ridge walking mood this year, so I plan on doing a lot of that this year if I am still in Utah this summer. I am not quite sure where I will go, but I will let everyone know once I decide. TG is not the only place with potential in the Logan area, so I might do that.
I do not have cave mapping equipment, but I would like to explore some of the tony grove caves more. These will probably mostly be recreation trips and attempts to get newbies into caving, but if I find anything significant, or stumble upon other caves that have not been documented I will keep everyone posted.

If you need some company for these ridge walks, explorations, let me know.
