GoPro going down a 650-feet deep mineshaft – abandoned mine near Joshua Tree

I lowered my Gopro Max 360° down a mineshaft that according to the USGS is 650 feet deep. It was a rough/bumpy ride down the shaft and the lens of the GoPro Max got cracked banging against the sides, even though I lowered it down the center of the mine shaft – so this gopro is trashed unless I can find a cheap lens-replacement (not the same or as easy as with a Gopro Hero). Spoiler alert: there are no skeletons, no ghosts, or anything else scary or bazaar at the bottom of the mine-shaft.. Just some dirt and rocks.
This is the abandoned Mission Mine in the Old Dale Mining District not far from Joshua Tree – you can only get to this mine with a 4WD vehicle.
