The mysterious "Devil's Kettle" waterfalls

The Devil's Kettle falls in Minnesota on the north shore of Lake Superior.
A brief view of the falls;spot some activity at some point down there.
View more to find out what the mystery is...



Technically its not a normal waterfall,but an interesting one.
It runs into a pothole (Devil's Kettle) and never comes out.
People have dropped all kinds of things (activity in the snaps) and they have never re-surfaced.
 

It is believed that the water makes its way out to Lake Superior by means of underground passages, but the exact details are unknown.
This is even more interesting to me since I wonder;what is stopping the inventors,explorers and discoverers of everything from finding out what on earth is going on there!!!
In other thoughts;If you have ever worried about falling over a waterfall, imagine falling into the Devil's Kettle :-)

  1. One would think they could attach an underwater camera to a couple miles or so of cable/rope and get a peek see... for starters

  2. Why not just block it up... surround the hole so that water can not enter.. as soon as the water level begins dropping.. send people in to find out where its all going..
