United States Devil Map
Having my cartographic curiosity piqued early in summer in the midst of heavy projects, I wondered how many geographic â€śdevilsâ€ť and accompanying â€śhellsâ€ť we have across the country. Having no source for a comprehensive list, Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll be told how many have been left out, but I did manage to find a few, finding large gaps across the plains and midwestâ€¦ thinking itâ€™s the more interesting landscape of the mountains and coasts the generally get the infernal titles.
Incidentally, thereâ€™s a surplus of Devilâ€™s Denâ€™s, Backbones, Elbows, Kitchens, and Hell Holes beside the more unique brands like Devilâ€™s Cup and Saucer Island, Devilâ€™s Icebox, and Satanâ€™s Kingdom. I was particularly amused that none of the Apostle Islands bear apostleâ€™s names, yet include a Devils Island and that the occasional residential roads have names like Evil Lane.
