Grammar question....

If I write this sentence...

"Looking for books, the Explorers traverse hexagonal rooms."

...the first part is an adverbial clause and a participle clause, and it all forms a proper sentence right? So is it also proper to write this:

"The Explorers traverse hexagonal rooms, looking for books."

Adverbial clauses can usually move around, and the meaning of the sentence doesn't seem to change, so is that last variation correct? As long as it isn't dangling, of course....

Thanks. And I'll probably delete this diary once I get an answer.
