    That’s Rooftop Quarry, located near Bloomington, IN – it’s the quarry where the main characters go swimming in the beginning of Breaking Away.

    It was always one of the hardest ones for kids from my high school to get to, since it was so popular, thanks to the movie. Thankfully, there were plenty more that were pretty off-the-radar, and just as full of rainwater. Aah, takes me back.
