Standing over the big drain - video!

Today I went down and walked along the bottom of the lake to see if the drain at the big pool would be visible. As I got closer I could hear it. You can hear the gurgling in the video. I carefully climbed down the rock slide, avoiding the mud and trying not to inhale the stale stench of death through my nose. As I got to within a few feet of it I saw a way to step across a couple rocks embedded in the mud and be able to stand directly over the drain and peer in. The water sounds and appears as if it is dropping straight in several feet. Reminded me of hearing water running in a cave passage.

Standing there on the shaky rocks felt precarious, so I shot ten seconds of video and climbed on out.
