Found by Dave Schnute, and Herb and Jan Conn in 1964. A ceiling pendent in this area resembles a large, upside down mushroom. Dave thought they must be in China because the mushrooms were growing upside down (referring to China being on the opposite side of the world). Also known as the Doughnut Room.
