White nose syndrome is bad and getting worse, and still spreading southward. It was found in Alabama last year and most public caves are closed or partially closed. When we do water quality testing at Russel Cave National Monument, we have to wear a tyvek suits and decontaminate before we leave the cave. Even after the decon, we still cannot wear those clothes anywhere else.
White nose is really bad and I hope that they get a handle on it, as I miss caving as well. There are lots of hidden spots in NE Bama, but my favorite holes are around Pigeon Mtn in GA.
