I was watching The Incredible Dr. Pol the other night and they mentioned The Mitten of Michigan. I’ve heard that expression before, but never understood why it was called that, which prompted me to go to a map program.
It does look like a mitten, doesn’t it?
So, then I wondered about other interesting state geographical identifiers. The only other ones I’ve heard of are: the panhandle of Florida and Texas and the boot of Texas.
Are there any other states with weird parts?
