Tuesday continued

Guadirikiri Cave is just a short distance from Fontein Cave and is not fenced off, since there are no indian drawings to damage. The entrance is father up the cliff, but because of openings in the roof of the cave, there is ventilation and the cave is more comfortable than Fontein.

There are several chambers at Guadirikiri Cave and we traveled perhaps 150 feet into the hillside. There was enough light from the occasional holes in the ceiling, that we had no trouble without flashlights. We saw several Aruban whip tailed lizards in the cave.
