Bozkovske dolomitove jeskyne

I had an opportunity for a brief visit to the Bozkovské Dolomitové Jeskynĕ or the Bozkov Dolomite caves. The cave system is 1060 meters long and hosts the largest underground lake in Czech Republic.

More information about this cave can be found from the wikipedia page. A good list of show caves in Czech Republic can be found from the expat page.

Mountain In The Hallway: Words & Artwork By Tate MacDowell

Mountain In The Hallway Last summer in my fight against cancer and pursuit of climbing the Grand Teton, I was forced to confront the disappointing reality of life’s challenges. During this period of time I realized that my reaction to tragic events may very well be the only thing I have control of.

Oh, Amore. It’s remarkable, the things that love will make you do. For freerunner Pavel Petkuns, that means leaping over bridges, balancing on gondolas, and traversing the rooftops of Venice just to be reunited with his love.
