Doling Park Cave
Out of all the places we've been to, this was by far one of the most disappointing. My expectations were probably way too high to start with though, since I expected to find some huge cave wide open to explorers. However, I should've known better. There's a giant rusty gate blocking the entrance, so it's pretty much impossible to get into. I really wanted to check this cave out since I kept hearing rumors that it goes all the way to downtown Springfield (although according to a cave map at MSU, it really isn't that long). Maybe we could try going in on a tour someday?

After poking around the entrance and feeling pretty defeated, we ended up just wandering around the park looking for anything interesting. You can see our desperation from what I was taking pictures of. Sewer Shinobi did have fun chasing the ducks and geese around though.
