Lake Berryessa is the largest lake in Napa County, California. This reservoir in the Vaca Mountains is formed by the Monticello Dam, which provides water and hydroelectricity to the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Check out this drone that hovers at approximately 1,000 feet above Lake Berryessa and then descends into the famous glory hole and almost gets lost forever. Our guess is that all the water draining into the spillway created a sort of vacuum that made the drone unstable the further it goes down.

What a close call! It takes some real skill to be able to get a drone that close to the glory hole without falling in. What a spectacular sight though, isn't it?

Check out this close call with a drone!

      That was quite an experience just viewing the video, I'm sure a lesser drone would have been pulled into the abyss. I'm aware of the zoom capabilities of the camera but it is still nearly overwhelming to watch. BTW, where is Lake Berryessa? I've never heard of it. Thank's for sharing.

      A "glory hole" is a hole in the stall of a public bathroom where men insert their penises for other men to perform oral sex on them anonymously...
