by Jonathan Cohn and Ben Collins “Natural swimming pools” are a classic trope in American fiction.
But they’re not real.
They are just a bunch of weirdly-shaped, hollowed-out, floating pools.
That’s how one of the first fictional natural swimming holes in the US, the Grand Canyon, came to be.
In the late 19th century, a local entrepreneur named Samuel L. Lofthouse, who’d been building his own swimming hole in the Grand for a decade, built a shallow swimming pool with a metal fence that surrounded the pool, then covered it in mud.
The pool, called the Lofthouses, had a circular bottom, and a metal roof that could be raised up and down.
It had a water-cooling system that was designed to maintain the water temperature of the pool by adding a pump, but when the water reached a certain temperature, it would run off the surface of the water and fall to the bottom of the reservoir.
When Lofthingtons pool finally came in contact with the Colorado River, the water ran off the bottom, splashing over the top and pool wall.
The water was so hot, the pool was literally floating, and the pool water itself was hot enough to burn your face.
Loffthouse then built a wooden wall in the pool that held the pool in place.
The Lof thouses were built by Thomas and Martha Lofthyfs sons, who, at the time, owned the Loffthouses themselves.
They took a piece of the concrete from the pool and glued it onto the bottom.
Then they filled it with cement.
Then, using the same method, they poured the cement into the hole and poured the water out.
They put in a metal floor, then a concrete wall.
Then the LOF thouses.
The family sold the L ofthouses and the surrounding property to a local builder named William Loftlings in the late 1890s.
It was then, in 1900, that Loftmings family finally decided to open the pool.
They built a large concrete swimming pool, which they called the Big Lof-thouses.
They sold the pool to the American Naturalist Society, and then in 1917, they opened a small natural swimming pool in Grand Canyon National Park, near the Grand, with a concrete surface and concrete floor.
The park’s naturalist, John R. Adams, and his colleagues began to wonder what happened to the pool after the L OFthouses had been constructed.
Why had the pool suddenly been transformed into a “supernatural” pool?
Why did the pool sink down and become a watery pool?
What happened to all the fun and games that had taken place in the LOUFthouses over the years?
In the summer of 1923, Adams sent an expedition to the Grand to investigate.
He and his team spent much of the time in the Big Room, a small room with a large wooden ceiling and a wooden pool table.
They saw a few small lumps of concrete stuck to the ceiling of the Big Rooms pool, and noticed that one of them was filled with water.
The team set out to investigate the hole.
They brought up a rock and examined it closely, but they couldn’t get a definitive picture of the size of the hole until they took a picture of it with their telescopes.
Then their search ended.
When the team returned to the Big room in the spring of 1924, they were disappointed to find that the hole had sunk below the floor.
They went back to the cave, where they discovered more concrete.
When they returned, the cave was no longer filled with rock.
It now looked like a big, hollow hole.
The cave had been filled with the kind of rock that’s hard to find in a rock formation.
“It’s a great mystery, isn’t it?”
Adams said in a letter to the magazine.
“If the Big Caverns was only a hollow, this is what the rock would look like.
We could easily see what we had seen.
It’s very hard to see the outline of a natural formation that you might expect in a hollow like the Grand Caverns.
But I can see it clearly, because it’s in a very well-defined position.
We can see what it’s like to see a natural rock formation in a well-preserved structure.”
After this initial discovery, Adams and his crew decided to dig a hole.
But before they could dig, they had to go through a complicated process to remove the rock from the rock formation they were working in.
The process took about six weeks, and in the end, they managed to bring the rock back into the cave.
But then, after digging the hole for another two weeks, they found a very odd and mysterious structure that seemed to be a small hollow on top of a large rock formation on the other side of the cave from the Big Cave.
After a long investigation, Adams found out that the rock was actually a rock pile that
