The Devil’s Millhopper is a sinkhole in the Devil’s Millhopper Geological State Park of Gainesville, Florida. This 120 foot deep bowl shaped hole was created by the collapse of the limestone rock under the ground. The sinkhole creates a miniature rain forest in almost in the middle of the city. Devil’s Millhopper is also a National Natural Landmark and has been visited by tourists since the 1880s. Paleontologists have found fossil shark teeth, marine shells and the fossilized bones of extinct animals in the sinkhole. Twelve springs feed the small pool at the bottom of the sink. sinkhole got its name from its similar appearance to the hopper of a mill, along with the bones found at the bottom, suggesting animals entered it on the way to meeting the devil. The Park is located northwest of the University of Florida. The park is adjacent to San Felasco County Park, and near the San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park.

Описание для места - USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
