are looking at the highest waterfall in Florida 73 feet.
This is not a typical fall because here the water flows into a sinkhole.
During a summer thunderstorm you may see a raging torrent cascading ovcer the edge. In a drought, the water may slow to a trickle.
|Over the thousands of years, water containing a weak, natural acid, seeped through cracks in the soft limestone. Below the surface, the rock dissolved, forming underground cavities. Eventually the roof collapsed, resulting in the sinkhole.||
This limestone formed over 20 million years ago from animal shells and sand deposited on the ocean floor when the sea covered most of Florida.
