    Arrow Delph Reservior, Dec 2007


    Visted with a good friend of mine Zanderos, who was back in Bolton from Hong Kong for his brothers wedding, so we made the most of the day.

    Some pretty amazing stuff around reservoirs that I never even noticed before.


    Can anyone tell me what this is? it appears to be just the water preasure pushing the water upwards and then gravity pulling it back down around itself.








    Was more then a lil nervous about entering this tunnel, but after a breif discussion and getting out the search blaster in we went.




    even my 2MCP Search Blaster couldnt reach the end of the tunnel, we did go all the way to the end, but nothing worth taking pics of (I thought at the time), but now I wish I had done.

    That is a helluva nice place! There are so many interesting bits to see by the look of it. Love those whirly-gig venty things in the last pic.

    Cheers :)
