That photo is looking from the inside, toward the outside of the mine. Its since been gated inside, and that photo is no longer possible to be taken from that point. Hope this helps.

yes like tony said this mine is now gated. it was filled from the outside years ago, but the fill subsided down into the tunnel allowing access for a few years. this mine was in bad shape with real bad top just after you pass the concrete reinforced area.
