– Crystal cleal lake

– There are two old sunken cars. They are old and rusty but still interesting to see.  (no dead buddies in the trunk)
– There are a couple of small sunken boats. One of them is marked on the picture, the others we have to find! Bring a compass to practice underwater navegation.
– People have thrown shopping cars and stuff down there. Lets explore the entire lake, there might be more to see!
– The bottom has a white mod that is very soft. You could stick your hand up to your elbow if you wanted to… but do not try it!
– There is a very short thin grass that grows on the bottom on some parts, nothing that you can get entangled with.
– You can park your car just a few feet from the water!
– The water is warm.
