Time to freefall: Every spring, snowmelt cascades down the tiered Baatara Gorge in northern Lebanon. Three natural bridges crisscross the cave, framing the 830-feet-long freefall into the Baatara Pothole, a chasm through Jurassic limestone burrowing into Mount Lebanon. A day trip from Beirut, I would pull on these cotton track pants, pack a mezze picnic, and drive the 45 miles to Tannourine, turning at Balaa village. Hopefully, the heat of summer has yet to squelch the spectacle.
