"Let's take a swim! Oh, wait..."

Here is what one looks like on the inside.

Just one. And at night, another duck swims by and quotes Silence of the Lambs to him in quacks.

"Would you quack me? I'd quack me. I'd quack me hard."

That's in Lake Berryessa, about a half hour outside of Sacramento, California and its a man made reservoir for parts of Yolo and Solano counties. Some of you may have heard we're having a drought. Here is about what the glory hole is looking like now.

And just as a note, Lake Berryessa is extremely drought resistant. So this is an example of a reservoir in good condition at the moment.

Im gonna need a Zorb ball, a GoPro and about 8 beers.......

If you see a silver man on a surfboard we should all worry.

And it has a glory hole. I wonder what that means.

I wonder how many ducks are down there.

Dammit which one you divided by zero?

In my mind's eye, I see Donald Duck, wearing a Minnie Mouse-like skin, saying these lines.

And what would happen if there's a bump on this log as it fell in the hole to the bottom of the sea?

Nice link bro Edit: Link is/was not visible on mobile

it's part of a dam, and leads to the spillway

you only fall for 30 meters or so then you hit the ground and die

I don't care. I'm never getting into a body of water that has one of these. All I can think about is getting sucked down and falling forever. I've never had a fear until I saw one of those.

I'm not gay but 20$ is 20$ #yolo

I wondered where it leads to, perhaps the centre of the earth? Dinosaurs and giant talking mushrooms?

It was Yolo county long before those YOLO Twitterfucks ruined the name.

That's terrifying.

why Caarrrrl

why

It would probably die, as most species of frogs are not suited for life on a bump on a log at the bottom of the sea

That fucking terrifies me

99 beers on Zorb ball.

And what would happen if there's a frog on this bump on this log as it fell in the hole to the bottom of the sea?

Here's a picture of one that's not submerged.

.

What happens when say... a tree falls into one?

Helplessly going downstream to a waterfall is one thing.. but in a kayak getting sucked towards that? I'd take the waterfall any day.

This is actually scary. It's crazy to think that just a few hours north there is so much water they don't know what to do with it and us in Cali are losing our reservoirs... I went to WA a few weeks ago. Never seen so much water in my life!

California would have a county named Yolo.

Glory hole.

Carl. I'm sure it was Carl.

In the dark

At the bottom of a hole

Alone.

Seven days.

I don't get this "I'm on a phone" business. I'm on a phone, and I can make a coherent sentence.

Its a vertical tube, when the reservoir gets too high it empties into the spillway and looks awesome like that.

No barrier for kayaks? Swimmers? Swimming dogs??? Or is this an out of bounds area?? Good lord, never seen one before and it bloody terrifies me, as a keen canoeist (regularly use my local dam) I hope we don't ever build one of these things here?

And what would happen if there's a snail on the tail of the frog on the bump on this log as it fell in a hole to the bottom of the sea?

I tend to forget about Fantastic Four 2

Turkeys can't. I'll bet there are a lot of Turkeys in there.

What I don't understand about those things is why they don't have a metal grid on top to prevent accidents, even if they are rare.

That, actually IS their correct name.

dolan

FTFY

Lake Shasta in Northern California also has one, and its real name is a glory hole

Still scary to me

Bell mouth spillways always creep me out. Always.

I just want 8 beers

Damn it, Carl!

It's always Carl.

One of these In lake berryessa in Napa/winters. Some poor soul did get sucked into in years ago

There is a "glory hole" in lake berryessa, which is located in Napa county. A girl in 1997 was sucked into the "glory hole" and did not survive the incident. http://daviswiki.org/Morning_Glory_Spillway

Edit: grammar(on phone)

Not if it was put at the top.

This is how it looks inside http://tastelessphoto.com/urban-eploration/bellmouth-spillway-exploration/

Yes, we have many lakes and creeks and rivers. Going swimming in a creek today actually. Although we have not had a lot of rain so all the water levels are really low and we are getting a lot of toxic algae in the smaller lakes.

if i remember right, you can actually swim up to the ledge of it and be perfectly fine. As long as the water is only a few inches above the lip.

As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly

.

BY YOUR NEEDS COMBINE YOU ARE....../u/filbin!

We all do.

I work in YOLO county. I hate the word. I always see the YOLO bus.

Wishbone

but then you get like 500xp on call of duty, so it's win-win

Gooby pls

Generally access to the body of water is restricted. Under this kind of pressure a grate would simply slice and dice whatever hit it anyway.

Mirror?

Awesome pictures, but this Eli comes off like a douche in his writing.

Assuming you didn't hit any of the pylons or dividers. there is usually a pretty large drop at the other end. not to mention the fact that the water itself would throw you around. Chance of survival: Low

20 USD is 21.84 CAD

Well that goes without saying.

Just don't canoe when the water is high. It's to keep the water level in check during high rains and stuff.

I doubt it. Any debris would get caught in it and eventually cause a plug. when i first saw the pic, I thought it was from a dam in New Zealand.

I just want a zorb ball

Funny, I see Howard the Duck.

I want a GoPro.

Is their a grate or mesh In it?

Yeah before I hit send/reply/submit I tend to read everything over. It only takes a few seconds and is a good habit to form imo.

It's real: Lake Berryessa, California.
