    Visited with The Kwan, Snake Oil and too many others to mention!

    I'm being deliberately vague about the location of this one at the request of my guides.

    I've found a brilliant description of what it's like in this mine on another site:
    A fantastic day, even if my thigh muscles disagreed the next couple of days!

    This might look a nice and confortable height, but I'm on my hands and knees taking this!

    There's some fantastic geological formations down here

    The whole mine is basically one long stoop or crawl, even the emergency exit!

    There's occasional respite in what looks like break areas

    The ceiling is bulging in places

    'twas a fantastic morning of stoopy aching mudiness, and great to meet everyone (even though two of us went down the wrong tunnel and lost everyone else! :D )
