As they climbed, crawled and hiked through the dark and rocky chambers of Buckman Cave, participants of the Los Alamos Adventure Edge program became very acquainted with the c-word.No, the word isn’t crazy; it’s courage. Even in pitch-blackness, young adults faced and defeated their fears. The Buckman Cave adventure wrapped up a series of caving activities. Each trip increased in difficulty. A beginning caving activity took participants to Junction Cave in El Malpais Jan. 21. Afterwards, an intermediate caving program was held Feb. 15-18. Young spelunkers toured Alabaster Cave in Zia Pueblo before advancing on to Buckman Cave near Santa Fe. The cave activities were a part of the Los Alamos Recreation Department’s Adventure Edge Program. On the final trip to Buckman Cave, eight participants, whose ages ranged from 12-23, filled up the recreation van, hiked down a sandy trail and trekked up boulders to test their physical and mental capabilities.
