Who put that there?!

Living where I do, people put a lot of strange things in the ground. And after the amount of winter rain that we got this year, some things tend to pop up... or fall open. I say fall open because this morning my uncle notice a sink hole forming on one of the drives behind his property. An hour later and it collapses exposing a VERY old well. Before it started collapsing in on itself, it was close to 30ft deep. My uncle used his tractor to dig up the rest of the loose ground and then filled in the well with some rocks and dirt and then graded the road to smooth it out. We'll keep our eyes on it for the next few months to see if it comes back.








And of course a Jeep picture.

You really have to watch for that stuff in Az where it rains hard and fast when it does rain. Oh, and nice Jeep pic.

Where we are, there are 2 creeks that run around us. About 95% of the time through the year, they are bone dry... but we do have a fairly active water table under us. My uncle's friend who happens to be some kind of retired geologist said that the well location was perfect for the time (~80 years ago) to be used daily. And with the current water table it slowly ate away at the dirt that was used to fill in the well and slowly exposed it.

Thanks!

Cool stuff bud. Glad you found the hole safely and noone fell into it finding it.

And your jeep's still teal.

Teal is the preferred name over "Bright Jade Satin Glow"...
