Researches Have Spent Hundreds Of Years Trying To Solve The Mystery Of This Double Waterfall
November 4, 2015
Side-by-side waterfalls send half of a river on its merry way to Lake Superior. But the other half? No one's been able to figure it out.
For hundreds of years, explorers and hikers have been baffled by Minnesota's Devil's Kettle Falls. Located by Lake Superior's northern shore, where the Brule River forks in Judge C.R. Magney State Park in Grand Marais, lies a geological anomaly: a double waterfall. But that's not the strange part.
While one side tumbles down a two-step stone embankment and continues on like a normal waterfall, the other side vanishes into a deep hole and disappears — apparently forever.

Researchers have tossed many items into the kettle - including dye, ping pong balls, and even logs - then watched the lake for any sign of them. To this day, nothing has ever been found.
Considering the sheer quantity of water pouring into the kettle every minute of every day, the water has to be going somewhere. But where?
So if you happen to be traveling, say, somewhere in Eurasia and stumble across a geyser that's surrounded by ping pong balls, logs, and even a car that locals are reported to have pushed in one night years ago, you might want to call a geologist in Minnesota. You may just have solved the mystery of Devil's Kettle Falls.
