No One Knows Just How Deep Nevada’s Devil’s Hole Really Is

Devil’s Hole is a water-filled geologic formation in Nye County. In 1952, this isolated cave with its geothermal pool was made into a detached part of Death Valley National Monument to protect its indigenous pupfish, an ancient fish only found here. In 1962, after the death of two divers, the entire area was fenced off.

To this day, nobody knows the full depth of Devil’s Hole. Have you seen this geological anomaly up close and in person? Please share your experiences below.
