Signs

Running low on subject matter – there is nothing left blooming now.  But I want to keep the blog going… Canadians put a lot of signs in their parks.  Here are a few.

Bear, moose, coyote – cool! Let’s go look at some wildlife. From a distance.

“Hike with friends and a solid walking stick.”  I had no idea coyotes were so aggressive.  Note the solid walking sticks parked by the sign for your use.  We saw a lot of that.  We borrowed them, but never used them to fend off coyotes.  When we found a sporting goods store in Ingonish we bought trekking poles.

Wait, what?  Aggressive hawk? Are you kidding me?  I would love to know what incident prompted this sign.

Hmm.  Dangerous cliff.  No kidding.  But I like the graphics.

Okay, this I can see how this might not be obvious.

This was from Hopewell Cape on the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick.  The tidal bore is pretty damn impressive.  “Find a comfortable rock…”  And DO NOT PANIC is always good advice.

They’re really not kidding about it.

And here’s a classic from Dolly Sods, West Virginia.  Now this is something worth posting a sign about.  “If you did not drop it do not pick it up.”  Remind me to tell you about the live grenade my next door neighbor had as a World War II souvenir.

One thought on “Signs

  1. haha Pretty amusing. And yet, I cannot tell you how many times I’ve seen idiots stop on highways because they’ve seen a bear. Then they get out of their car, with the kids (!) and a camera to take pictures.
