The sun began to rise long before my iron had finished smelting.
|Hurry up, furnace!|
While I waited for the furnace to finish, I packed up my workbench and went to place my sign. The canyon was just as breathtaking as the previous dusk. To the south of the waterfall I could see an O-shaped hole in the mountains. That would be my goal.
|Beside the waterfall.|
|Through the hole, looking south and east.|
|Looking directly east. Guess I'm heading further south, then.|
|Back north-east at the outer side of the canyon mountains.|
|Hello there, tunnel.|
|Up to the sun, Brendan, not down to the mines.|
|Looking south east.|
|I feel like I am looking across a road into someone's window.|
|It was hard to get it on a good angle.|
|Mushrooms! And an ominous tunnel...|
|Back down the western tunnel.|
I backed out the way I had come in and looked to the east at a rather strange mountain.
|Is that a big floating rectangle?|
|The floating blocks freak me out.|
Moving on, I climbed the lower, more normal, levels of the mountain. As I got higher, the mountain got stranger. In the end, I was climbing a staircase a single cube wide into the clouds.
|Should not have looked down. (Back south and west)|
|Some kind of Mountain Guru Pig?|
|My eastern path.|
|The floating block is a nice touch.|
|An old riverbed, perhaps?|
|Goodbye, fair Mountain Guru Pig!|
I should have watched my thoughts, though, as they soon ended.
|Ocean time. Again.|
The sun was already fairly low. I wasn't about to go repeating the same mistake as two nights ago. Just to the north I could see what looked like a complex of caves. I blocked off one end with some dirt and glass, and made myself a camp.
|I guess this is home for the night.|
It had been an exciting day. The canyon in the morning, the waterfall, the crazy rectangle mountain with its Guru Pig. Certainly, it more than made up for the previous day's non-adventure.
I crafted some tools and placed the iron I had found during the day in the furnace and started some mining. That did not last for long, however, as I broke into the broader cave network.
I blocked it up, returned to my camp, and just waited for the sun.
I wonder if Guru Pig is still on his mountain?
