Surrounded by mystery and murder,located on historic US6 Highway,is a pond or small lake that has been the site of many ghostly appearances,and others strange happenings.Palmdale California is where it is located,and it is said to be bottomless.Lots of locals have tales of the lake.Many don't have a clue to just how strange this body of water is ,and how it came into existence.It is located on the east side of Sierra Highway,not far past the "WELCOME TO PALMDALE" sign.It is a beautiful sight amidst the brown barren landscape that surrounds it. Most of the Palmdale area is flat and dry.This unusual lake has been called "UNA LAKE",but may have been named something else in the past.Stories have been told of people disappearing while swimming in the lake,monster like creatures swimming in it,and were seen surfacing to feed on small animals and birds.Scuba teams intrigued by the legends have gone to dive there,and while some reported they saw no bottom,one scuba diver was said to never surface,and his body was never recovered.I also read a story of a local Palmdale man who was murdered and his body dumped into the lake.No report whether his body was ever found.I am still trying to find out more about the family history,or the first people to first settle here.The land is supposedly privately owned.Many of the stories that surround "Una Lake",speak of a tall dark figure that is said to be dressed like a fisherman with a hat on,that screams garbled warnings to trespassers,to "leave" or "Get out of here".Tales of shadowy shapes climbing the trees and then vanishing,by people who have risked visiting the lake.It is fenced off with chain link fencing,and entry is prohibited.It does not seem to stop kids ,thrill seekers,ghost hunters,and the plain curious,from getting in to have their own supernatural experience.Stories go back to the 1880's.I am not sure of the year,but the story goes that on a cold winter day when the road was icy a busload of children went off the road and into the lake.When the rescuers arrived,and divers went into the water there were no signs of the school bus and it's passengers.It had vanished into the dark bottomless waters of the lake.There is a partial explanation,possibly,for some of these stories.The lake is situated on siesmicly active ground.It is what is called a rift lake,or sag pond,and are formed when a fault line shifts ,and leaves gaps in the land,and deep depressions,which can fill with water,and become a small pond or lake.Scientists and divers discovered this ,and the fact that they were unable to locate the bottom confirms some of the weird stories.Because of it's connection to a local fault,they came up with the theory that it may connect to another body of water somewhere.Hence the "Bottomless Lake".This still does not explain all of the other strange sightings,and stories,coming from this location.I live in Agua Dulce,California,about 20 miles from "Una Lake",and it leaves a strange feeling inside me everytime I drive by.I want to investigate more closely,and take some photographs.Maybe I will have a tale all my own to tell.
