    One of my favorite signs. My wife and I took this on a vacation in the Everglades last year. It was a long, difficult climb of almost twenty minutes on a straight road to get there. How some road engineer managed to get a road to the summit with no curves or switchbacks still amazes me. Strangely, there was no temperature change at the summit and we didn't feel the thinner air like we have at other passes.

    At the General Store. An accurate sign.

    When my wife and I visited the Everglades (no bikes, alas), she had to visit the Orchid Jungle, which is the largest orchid propogator in the country. They have a large piece of land and there's a walking trail with orchids on display here and there, and little signs pointing to them and giving various details.

    Naturally, she had to stop at each and check it out thoroughly, so I strolled ahead. There was a small rise with a bench, and there was another sign there. I figured it was pointing at another orchid.

    But instead, the sign read: "Welcome to Mt. Dade. Highest Point in Dade County. Elevation 18 Feet." The bench was so that you could get your breath back.

    Alas, I have no pictures of that.

    This one in Saskatchewan stopped me. It may make a lot of sense in farm country, but as someone who lived most of his life in large cities it made me stop for a picture.



    [The name of the plant, rape (sometimes called rapeseed), comes from the Latin for turnip. The plant is used primarily for animal feed, biofuels, and cooking oil (canola oil). I had to look it up.]

    Just east of Aztec, NM. Not sure what sort of things could possible be shot but, not wanting to take any chances, I saluted appropriately. Note bullet holes in the sign. -Bob

    Not my picture, but I've driven past this one a number of times. It's a real sign from I-75 in Troy, MI (just north of Detroit):
