    Enjoyed seeing these photos. Back in the 70’s my wife and I camped many times at Jacob’s Well on the adjacent Harwell property. Also enjoyed many day and night dives in the well. First dive was with a “shorty” wetsuit. Almost froze to death. needless to say, all subsequent dives were with a FULL wetsuit.
