Have You Seen The Giant Devil on the Side of this Walhalla Road?
With Halloween right around the corner, relatively speaking, I can't say I'm surprised to see Halloween decorations popping up around town. However, this decoration may be the best I've seen so far.
In the Facebook group, Abandoned, Old and Interesting Places in Michigan, an account with the name Aloha Dave posted a series of pictures of something that caught their eye while they were driving by. That something was a giant devil head and hands:
Said to be located in Walhalla on the side of the road in U.S. 10, I'm dying to know the story behind this giant decoration. Thankfully, people in the comments provided some insight.

I don't have an exact location but comments suggested you can spot it between Baldwin and Ludington on U.S. 10. I combed through Google Maps street view for a good 20 minutes and could not find it.

However, if you find yourself driving through this area of Michigan don't be startled if spot an actual devil.
