It was once possible to find R’lyth, the home and resting place of Cthulhu, on Google Maps and on Google Earth. The video at the end of this post acts as evidence. Today it’s not possible to find R’lyeh on either of those two properties.
Aww, shucks, Google. I hope you had good reason for removing it – like lawyers threatening to sue after explorers attempt to follow Google Maps directions.
The good news for geeks is that there are some geekworthy locations that Google Maps can’t so easily get rid of. Here’s a sample below.
Aragorn, Frodo, Leoglas, Galadriel and others
At Geldrop, the Netherlands
New Richmond, USA
North Charleston, USA
Batman (including Batman Airport)
The good thing about Batman having an airport is that we can find photographs like this one.
Evidence that R’lyth (along with the bloop location) was once on Google Earth
There are streets named for Lord of the Rings characters near some friends in Severn, Maryland. The maps link is:
The streets are:
Baggins Rd, Aragorn Ct, Gollum Rd, Pippen (sic) Ct, Strider Ct, and Mordor Lane.
Apparently one CAN walk to Mordor.
