Devil's Churn

Devil's Churn

The Pacific Ocean filters into a narrow inlet called the Devil's Churn, in Cape Perpetual Scenic Area near Yachts, Oregon. The inlet developed over many thousands of years as wave action carved into the basalt shoreline, first forming a deep sea cave whose roof eventually collapsed. As the tide comes in it can throw spray several hundred feet into the air when the waves reach the end of the churn.
