U is for Underground
Exploring the underground is one of the activities I do with my friends when we're on vacation. Caving or spelunking is often undertaken for recreation, which to my mom, is insane! Caves are one of the last unexplored places on earth, and some of the environments are very fragile. I don't normally like enclosed spaces but spelunking is one activity where I conquer my fear. Sure, I think about earthquakes and cave-in all the time when I'm underground but it's a small price I have to pay for an innate need to explore. Living a relatively safe life, I guess I enjoy the element of danger exploring the underground---climbing or crawling is often necessary, squeezing through chasms and low tunnels, rappelling, swimming, negotiating steep or slippery passages make spelunking an exciting sport and physical activity.

Spelunking is not necessarily a high-risk sport---as in all physical sports, knowing one's limitations is key. Safe caving tips here.
