BK, did you eye that hole (abandoned well) on Google Earth before you went? or did you stumble upon it?

Just stumbled across it. I went back to GE later and found it, but unless you knew it was a well, you probably wouldn't recognize it as a hole.

I hope the park doesn't go out there and cover it up with some bars now that they know about it.

Surely, you know that is exactly what they will do (or fill it in).

Now that it is a known hazard, the NPS will not let it be. Some inept person of questionable "outdoor" competence (but self-identified as "experienced" because they hiked the plant trail at Panther Junction) could hurt themselves.

A good example of why not everything that one finds outdoors needs to be broadcast.

Well shoot, better run out there to get a look at the badknees-creepy-well before it "disappears".

Thanks for the report, and the explorations. If the creepy well doesn't go away, then we'll have to name it after you.
