"Devils Heart" - Glacial feature near Devils Lake ND This very distinct 175' tall hill (kind of rare in this area of state!) is composed of sand and gravel and is believed to have been formed by a glacial hydrodynamic blowout (Veblin), when high-pressure groundwater flowed to the surface during glacial thrusting of the Wisconsonian glaciation period, spanning ~75000 to about 11,000 years ago. Hard to imagine a mile of ice sitting on top of this landscape..
