    Bennett Springs State Park.

    Well we ended up making 2 dives on Saturday 2/10/18.
    Air temps were 20 degrees and freezing rain when we went in, water was 55 degrees.
    We really didn't want to get out until spring, it was brutally cold loading gear after we were done.
    Everything was frozen by the time we left, all in all we had a couple of cool dives, made it down to 80ft where the water was really flowing.
    It was very clear and we saw tons of trout, sculpin, and a few crawdads.
    It is a pretty cool dive & if you have never done it I would recommend you give it a try sometime, earlier in the year might be a better plan to avoid the freezing temps.
    We had 5 divers total and 1 fair weather safety diver that stayed on the surface.
    I shot some video but I don't have a clue how to edit video from my gopro, something I need to learn so i can add music and just keep the best parts of the video.
    I am ready for spring to warm up the lakes so we can get back to diving more often.

    The boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where one ends, and the other begins?

    Looks like fun. The local dive club has talked about going there.
