Do you know if this is The Solitude Tunnel or is this a different mine?
Have you been to any of the mines in that area?
Hey I had the same problem with raising dust and using the flash!! must remember not to disturbed the ground before taking a photo!
I must admit I also check out old gold mines in Western Australia and love being out there! :)
When you get to the bottom from the road, it is a pretty steep climb up shale type rock (very slippery). Make sure and wear decent hiking boots or decent shoes that you feel comfortable sliding around in. It's not super hard, but definitely a decent challenge to get up the run to the base.
Also, shouldn't have to be said, but we saw a handful of snakes when we went up. There is nothing around this mill, so nothing scares away the wildlife. Just be cautious and have fun :)
I have a few pistons that big in my truck...Not.
