“Dropping a pit is often one’s first introduction into vertical caving. We rigged our ropes to rappel into Stephens Gap, a 143-foot pit in Jackson County, Alabama. Around 10AM the sunlight cascaded through the entrance and illuminated the pedestal above,” writes #YourShotPhotographer David Morring. “Sharon Clayton clipped into the rope and descended into the shaft of light like a divine messenger from heaven. It was truly an other-worldly moment.” This photo was published in our “Rites of Passage” story, guest-edited by Jenn Poggi.
