Warning? Danger? [04 Sep 2006|01:30pm]

[ mood | x-posty ]

So we were on vacation, and one of the many things we did was ride the little goofy train at Buckskin Joe's, outside of the Royal Gorge in Southern Colorado. Which was fun, but I was very puzzled by this sign, the only one along the route.

I mean, what's the deal? Do they really get so many tourists from places without red ants that they have to EXPLAIN what the characteristic pile of gravel is??

In case you are interested, I have the whole trip spread out over seven pages. Some of it is ruins, some scenery, some just personal shots I thought were amusing enough to share. The locations we hit are Trinidad, the Highway of Legends, Great Sand Dunes, an alligator farm near Alamosa, our ride on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway plus a tour of their train yard (some good relics shots in there), and the Royal Gorge.

My friends and I were driving down the road in Lake City, FL, and we saw this restaurant and just had to stop and eat there.

The sign at the entrance to Fort Hamilton says "To Proceed, STOP".

That's all. I'm not about to try to take a picture of a military base under one of the country's longest suspension bridges.

Just joined, partly because I felt that the sign in the info would be an excellent icon. Feel free to gank.

Other than that, keep it roady. Keep it signy, and keep it dumb.
