Journey to the Center of the Earth (Caving)

One thought on “Journey to the Center of the Earth (Caving)”

  1. In late June, they reach the volcano, which has three craters. According to Saknussemm’s message, the passage to the center of the Earth is through the one crater that is touched by the shadow of a nearby mountain peak at noon. However, the text also states that this is only true during the last days of June. During the next few days, with July rapidly approaching, the weather is too cloudy for any shadows. Axel silently rejoices, hoping this will force his uncle who has repeatedly tried to impart courage to him only to succeed in making him even more cowardly still to give up the project and return home. Alas for Axel, however, on the second to last day, the sun comes out and the mountain peak shows the correct crater to take.
