Whiskeytown Lake Glory Hole

We saw this gigantic overflow drain when driving around Whiskeytown Lake on our trip from Eureka to Redding. As cool-looking as it was, the amusing part was the name of the drain ("The Glory Hole"). Not the largest in the world, but still a sight if you've never seen one before! It can also be seen on Google Earth.
