In Northern California lies a lake called Lake Berryessa. For those of you who don’t know what Lake Berryessa is, it’s a lake with a hole in it that operates as a drain for the Monticello Dam in Napa Valley. The dam can hold approximately 526 billion gallons of water before it ultimately overflows. People who live in the area become increasingly concerned when the area experiences heavy rainfall, because any spillway lands in the nearby Putah Creek, which can create a lot of flooding.
This lake is mesmerizing enough to have made an appearance in the James Bond movie. One day, an onlooker was using his drone to take photos and captured an interesting hole in the lake. The man was of course completely taken back by what he had seen. We can’t blame him, it’s not every day that you see a hole in the middle of a lake. He was eager to post the photo on the internet, and once he did, it spread like wildfire.
Something Completely Unexpected
The man who captured it all is popular on YouTube, who is known to use his drone quite frequently. His name is Evan Kilkus. He was working at Lake Berryessa at the time of his discovery.
One day he was out with his drone and when he was going through the photos he took, he was absolutely blown away at what he had captured.
