    Visited with Xan Asmodi, The Kwan, Cunningcorgi and Walsh.
    Thanks to everyone for making my first venture underground so amazing!
    Special thanks to Cunningcorgi for a) picking me up from the station 80 miles out of the way and b) for putting up with an hour and a half of me there and back :rolleyes:

    This was my first trip down a mine and it's safe to say I caught the underground bug, probably about 10 minutes in. This place is so unbelievably vast that we only managed to see around a third of it despite being underground for about 6 hours. On with the photos:

    Thanks for looking, and as always, full set here!​
