Something strange has been happening at Lost Lake in central Oregon’s Willamette National Forest. The lake is peaceful and still, but when winter approaches, something unexplainable happens. A mysterious hole begins draining all of the lake’s water, leaving a barren landscape.
Scientists think the hole is a lava tube beneath the lake formed when flowing lava hardened near the surface and flowed downwards. As the eruption cooled, the hardened pipes emptied, leaving behind tubes in the form of vast tunnels. But what has puzzled researchers is where exactly all this water goes.
Where is all that water going? Only God knows!
