Picture Post

I will wait to speak about the nature of The Void until I have a final (or at least more conclusive) report. However, since we spent significant amount of time in the archaeology pit yesterday, I wanted to go ahead and post pictures.

The crevice that leads into The Void.

Close-up of crevice. Notice that there is 4'+ of water in the bottom of The Void.

The camera screen that allowed the archaeologists and plumbers to watch the feed from The Void in real time.

The pump.

The pump is in the water.

Almost empty!
