Day 503: more mining

Day 503:
Still mining away. Found some more emerald but not more diamond. Also almost fell into an underground lava lake. Those are inconvenient at best.

I’m almost done this particular area, I think, but it’s always hard to tell how often I’ve doubled up on myself or left something outstanding. I’ve started marking the paths I’m finished with a torch in the middle to signify it’s done.  Because it’s easy to get lost down here.

When I look up, all I see are walls I’ve already mined, with twists and turns and juts and oddities. It’s both impressive and scary, as I hope I’ve buttressed everything appropriately that it doesn’t come crashing down on my head.
