Devil’s Bathtub


“Devil’s Bathtub”

Hocking Hills, Ohio “As the water works its way down through Old Man’s Cave Gorge, one of the first unusual areas that it encounters here at Devil’s Bathtub. This is an area in the sandstone that has been cemented together more tightly than the other nearby rock layers. Because of this constriction of the stream, it has forced the water to carve in the only direction it can, straight down. Over time the swirling action has carved out the “bathtub” shape in the rock. Legend says the swirling drain goes all the way down to Hades itself.

Hocking Hills never ceases to amaze me with its beauty. Really glad I trekked on after my gear got drenched because I ended up at a few beautiful waterfall locations.
