I really don't understand how such a beautiful spot came to be named "Devil's Punchbowl". There does not seem to be anything particularly evil, malicious or even all that dangerous about this location. If anything it is a picturesque gem of a swimming hole. I had never done the "hike" (more of a walk) out to this spot before but as with any return trip I try to mix in at least one new destination. And while the temperature of the water dissuaded following up any notions of jumping in, the color of said water was enough to persuade us to sit here and linger awhile.
