Cave at Tikon

[chuck] in Other, Tikon, cave

About an hour and a half's walk out from Tikon (see Faces of Tikon and Three Jumps to Tikon), and a little bit up one of the surrounding mountains, is a large cave. You can easily walk in for 20 to 30 meters, but after that you must crawl through dark, damp, decidedly claustrophobic, passages to access the vast interior of the cavern. I didn't actually do any crawling, but several members of the survey team did and they came back with stories of cozy, interior rooms with pots and remnants of old fires and animal bones. Wonder who used to live in here? [NOTE: And who were they hiding from?]
