Madison Blue Springs State Park – Potters Delight (Attempting the Courtyard)

Breathing Gas– 32% Travel / 100% Deco
Max Depth
– 71ft
Avg Depth

Visibility– 30-50ft
Water Temp– 72F
Dive Time: 127min

Met with Stacey at her place and carpooled up to Madison Blue Springs State Park.  The water was clear, flow was reasonable, and in general it was just a great day to dive there.  The only downside was the heat, which makes the setting up time in a drysuit not too fun.  We swam to a tunnel near the end of the gold line, went down it, and turned after we found ourselves in a complete silt out.  Backtracking, we finally got on the potters delight jump, and made it to Rocky Horror where the slate is, then turned the dive, as Stacey’s drysuit had flooded.  Deco was uneventful, and it was still a fun dive regardless of the fact that we didn’t get to the Courtyard as planned.
