Re: Swimmin' Hole at Groom Lake?

The pool is only about 200 ft. long. I remember some discussion about it a while back, but I am not sure if we came to a consensus as to what it is.

It is just inside the fence line that keeps Steve Medlins cattle out of the base. In fact a cattle guard can be seen in the road a few hundred yards to the east. I would vote for a cattle watering hole, but it is INSIDE the fence, not accessible to the cattle.
Judging from the shadow on the bottom of the pool, it is rather deep. I don't think its a coincidence that it is right at the fence line.

BTW: A few hundred yards outside the fence line the paved road coming from Area 51 turns into a dirt road. Perhaps it is as mundane as a station to wash the dust off the security vehicles?
