First define "underground river". There are many places around Death Valley where fault zones allow water from underground aquifers to reach the surface. The Travertine Springs which feed the Furnace Creek area disgorge water at something like 1,000 gallons/min. There is also Devil's Hole where a natural underground reservoir has a small opening to the surface. I don't have a clue as to what fantasies Manson may have had.

The concept of a "bottomless pit" is pretty irrational. But there are some substantial vertical mine shafts around the DV area.
