Mill Creek of Death

It's doesn't look much but it's really a creek that runs across the whole town. Most of it is covered. I hear stories that way back in the days of dinosaurs, Visalians would go tubing under the city in complete darkness. The smart ones would take their cigarettes with them to light the way. I say no way. The wildest thing I did as a youth was train catching. That's where you stand as close as you possible can while on a bridge. So, once the train comes, you are pretty much committed to possibly dying. It's very loud and very loud and very dangerous. You can easily get struck by the train or something on it. Maybe I would have gone tubing.
