Marker Name: The Power of Devils Churn
Marker Text: Pulverizing and pounding. Crashing and smashing.
Endlessly, relentlessly, the Pacific Ocean careens into Devils Churn, until the crescendo of waves explodes in a riot of white froth . . .and then escapes back to the sea.
Devils Churn puts on its most dramatic shows during high tides and storms.
Devils Churn began as a small fracture -- a weak area in the ancient volcanic rock.
Thunderous waves have gnawed at the rock for eons, eroding it away grain by grain, enlarging the crack into a chasm.
As you approach, you’ll feel the power of the churn like thunder in your bones, and anticipate each collision of wave and rock like bursting fireworks!
