Waterfall that kept going

Common wisdom says Florida doesn't have any water falls.

It's too flat.

Neither a glass half empty or half full,
Devil's Millhopper is the cup
that never fills up

Except for on spot where it has 12 water falls in one.

Stranger still is what happens at the bottom where you'd expect those twelve streams of water to converge. They disappear instead ... into the ground. It's called a swallet, or in layman's terms just the opposite of a spring (where ground water springs forth to the surface).

I'm still mystified.
