Free Fun Dive (well...wade, snorkel, swim), Natural Bridges, August 13, 2017, 10am - 2pm
The Natural Bridges, known to geologists as a “karst”, has sent the waters of Coyote Creek eroding through a layer of soluble bedrock and created a unique cave or cavern. Most people refer to it as a tunnel as this cave has two ends. The river enters the cave from the north end and exits out of the south end. The tunnel’s distance is about a quarter of a mile. The inside of the tunnel is very similar to a cavern with its oddly shaped formations hanging from its roof. Bring hiking shoes for the walk to the cave, drinking water, a 1mm-3mm wetsuit, water shoes or wetsuit boots, snorkeling gear, dive light, lunch...and join us. More information and directions.
Come for the day, or camp at: New Melones Lake, Tuttletown Recreation Area campground. Camp fees not included.
