This place was great for a relaxing dive while taking a day off from skiing. This site was about 20 minutes from Park city, and right near my buddies house in Midway. The entry into the volcanic rock formation [BEEHIVE} was extremely cool. It looked as though it was tunneled out by the miners who settled in this area a 135 yrs ago. This tunnel leads to the water filled crater and a small dock protruding. The water was crystal clear, and lit up at various depths by a set of lights that added to the beauty of this cave. I saw several submerged platforms, which are used to conduct dive classes of all levels. Homestead is considered a novice to advanced dive with a max depth of 66 feet, but, if you're planning to train for cave diving, I suggest you check this place out for its cave simulation qualities. You can rent the gear for short money. My personal gear was back in Boston, and you'll probably drown wearing your ski equipment. SO… Pack your mask in the luggage for your next trip to GOD' s country. If you live near this site I probably know you, so Ill see you here in February and hopefully all of you. OH YEAH… NO FLYING for 12 hours after this one, go skiing instead and I'll see you on the slopes!
