These fascinating sites may be named after God’s nemesis, but I find them too beautiful and awe-inspiring to feel any connection other than to the Great Creator.
Devil’s Swimming Pool (Natural Rock Pool)
In the border between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe lies Victoria Falls, the largest sheet of falling water in the world. The falls are stunning, awe-inspiring, until you see people enjoying themselves in the most incredible feature of the falls called the Devil’s Swimming Pool and just by looking at pictures, I have to say it totally took my breath away. A natural pool was formed near the edge of the waterfall and during the dry months of September and December, the river flow is at a safe level that people can swim as close as possible to the edge of the falls within the pool area. A natural rock wall keeps them from falling into the 360 feet gorge. It is safe enough that some people actually let their kids join the experience of a lifetime.
Devil’s Tower (Volcanic Neck)
America’s first national monument is a monolithic igneous intrusion located in the Black Hills of northeastern Wyoming. Also known as Bears Lodge or Bear Tower, it was once hidden until erosion revealed the 1,267 foot volcanic neck above the Belle Fourche River. President Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed it as the first national monument in 1906. Devils Tower is a sacred site for many American Indians.
Devil’s Churn (Inlet)
Devil’s Churn is a must see site when visiting the Coast of Oregon in the United States. The Churn is a long, narrow inlet of the Pacific Ocean developed over thousands of years as waves carved out the basalt coastline. The waves first formed a deep sea cave but the roof eventually collapsed. A spectacular site is seen when the tide throw spray several hundred feet into the air as the waves reach the churn.
