One of the interesting things about being on the road is the intersection of what one is supposed to look at, and the obtrusive signage beside it.

What looms larger? Monument Valley or the Monument to that city of momentary desire-Las Vegas?

Then there's the signs that explain things. Tell you what you see at places like Mesa Verde.

Here's a sign-Lewis and Clark were here...and enough vandals to make it necessary to encase the signature under glass.

This sign was our all time favorite. What, exactly were they getting at? Were they cautioning against leaving your personal animal remains, or were they assuring that if you were to camp here you would not be fussed by the animal remains the last camper so rudely left behind?
