Anniversary Mine hike #2

[Las Vegas, NV]
 Today we made a second visit to the  old Anniversary Mine out near Lake Mead and ran across this old mine shaft.

Now as a rule I don't go in these things but this one has been sitting here for many decades without any sign of collapse so I decided to risk going in.
 The tunnel made a dog leg to the right about 25 feet in from the portal so it was pretty dark after this point.

Then about 50 feet in from the dog leg the tunnel came to an abrupt end.  At least I didn't SEE any bats, spiders, or snakes.
