Man Notices Massive Hole In Lake, Flies His Drone Into It And Captures Incredible Footage

Have you ever driven along the highway and double looked at something you saw in your eye's corner? This is a typical experience for people who pass by Lake Berryessa, the seventh biggest human-made lake in California.


That's because it has what looks to be a giant hole. Out of use for many years due to the prolonged drought in California, it has finally sprung into action again in early 2017, capturing the interest of a man with a drone.


If you're curious to know what the inside of the hole looks like, then check out the breathtaking video below:



Lake Berryessa, built against a 304-foot dam, is famous for its "Glory Hole" slipway, a fantastic sight to see when it is at full capacity, especially, as the video above shows, when it's captured from the perspective of a drone.


When the drone captured the footage, it was the first time the glory hole had been used in more than a decade. Because of the rain that fell in January and February 2017, the lake filled up in only a few days.

The hole's widest part measures a surprising 72 feet across, and it travels a further 28 feet down. The water flowing into it is passes through a funnel, which eventually drains out into Putah Creek.


YouTube user Evan K captured the impressive video.
