Hands Off The Speleothems

Jan 11, 2013

Highland County’s Rick Lambert is a project caver.  Rick has been caving for decades and tells about some of the changes along the way --and about the joys of mucking about in the mud while wearing a hard hat. 

In Monterey, Virginia, he runs  Highland Adventure, a outdoor-exploring resource that organizes caving expeditions,  mountain bike trips, and rock climbs  --while also sometimes teaching  outdoor skills like survival-foraging.  Rick sometimes leads college groups into caves; for the risk of injury always associated with rough caving, he is a state-certified EMT with cave-rescue experience.
