One of the run-off trenches of portage valley. when the tide rises this ditch is completely full. The silt/mud is a liquid but also a solid. You can stand on it but if you stand on it too long you will slowly sink. Once your feet sink below the surface the mud creates a vacuum around your foot that makes it VERY hard to pull your foot free.
