Skocjan cave, 5:56 pm

In Feeling of the moment, Place description, Writing on 2012/08/02 at 19:40

The cavern we are in gets larger up ahead, the vaulted stalactite clad ceiling, lit up by a soft orange glow, expands outward then opens up on a black void. A string of lights like a band of diamonds stretches out into the darkness, shedding light on a vast canyon beyond. The floor drops off steeply to the river down below and the ceiling disappears overhead. There is a rushing of water from the river and the air feels cooler. A silent, ” bloody hell” rises up in me at the sight of the canyon which is awesome in the true sense of the word.

  1. […] Since our hire car allowed us to move faster than usual we hurried off to the next goal, Skocjan cave in the same area. This is less touristy though you are still forced to take a walking tour. The cave itself is also nicer, though not as abundant in drip stone features, the gigantic underground canyon is seriously awesome.
