    Places with Hellish names:

    The thread on the guy getting lost at lower sunset lake has a map link, and nearby there is a Hellhole Lake.

    I recall a Hellhole Canyon in Anza-Borrego Park in San Diego Canyon.

    and

    Hell for Sure Lake and the corresponding pass in the Sierra Nevada

    and

    Hell Roaring Lake in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho,

    and of course there is

    Hell's Canyon on the Snake River.


    Know any other place names like this?

    Up in the Okanogan while deer hunting west of Loomis, there is 'Skull and Crossbones' ridge - for some reason I have made that drive twice, but never again.

    Devils Punchbowl was the main attraction on my first Sierra backpack. Caught some nice brook trout in the lake immediately above Devil's punch bowl.
