|Walking down the sinkhole. A work-out going back up!|
As you walk down, you'll find about a dozen little waterfalls trickling their way down to the bottom of the sinkhole. Since the sinkhole basically has it's own climate down there (it's cooler in the summer and warmer in the winters), it is a home to three distinct ecological environments.
Here's an interesting fact I learned about this cool site (thank you, Internet): The sinkhole got its name because it looked like a hopper (chute) of a mill, and people also found bones at the bottom, so they concluded that animals entered the sinkhole on the way to meeting the devil. A little spooky, huh?
