Tried to get to the old mine this time but didn't. Will try the cave in late September when it's not so humid and hot.

4 stars for difficulty. We started at 6am but spent too much time for snacks and fun with our new friend tortoise completely forgot about the summer heat. When we headed back down, it was HOT. I forgot to turn the recording off until half way home lol. I'll do this again when the temperature is much lower.
