Krishna Venta was the founder of the Wisdom, Knowledge, Faith, Love Fountain of the World, a cult from the mid 1950s. Two former members suspected Venta was engaging in sexual activity with their wives so, using dynamite, launched a suicide attack against the cult’s headquarters (located nearby). 10 people were killed in all and many people report seeing barefoot people carrying bags of water in the hills, something the cult members were known for doing when they were alive.

  1. I started a new job at a school that took me through Box Canyon. It was sooooo creepy I KNEW something bad was there. It was so bad until I looked for another route and never went back. I never will either.

  2. I have driven this route 2 times a day for over 2 years. Besides the random coyote and/or crazy locals. I have never seen anything odd or strange and I hope I never do.
