We recently returned from our summer vacation which means only one thing boys and girls. That’s right, you can look forward to the next 50 posts being all about the trip. Well, probably not 50, but based on the number of pictures we took (literally thousands thanks to the digital age) I guess a fair amount of the following will focus on the various scenes caught through our expensive glass.
This year we headed out to take in some national parks. In particular, this included Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Rocky Mountain. Although a little rainy (all out storms to be more precise) and cold (high 30s to low 60s) we still had a great time. I’ll ease you into the trip experience with some images of various signs that caught our attention. Unfortunately, I missed the one that intrigued me the most. As we crossed into South Dakota there was a white billboard with the words “Prepare To Meet Thy God”. I am not exactly sure how to take that. Is it meant to be a generic warning to visitors to this part of the country that one should take some time to assess their worth before the inevitable end? Or perhaps it is an immediate foreshadowing that you are going to die RIGHT NOW by some crazed lunatic hiding behind the billboard.
We did see lots of these signs:
All I could think of was Hair-in-a-Can like Xmas tree flocking except with brown hair. Hope nobody reads this and decides they can play another Yeti hoax on the American public.
Funny, I never see this place in the Verizon commercials. In fact, our cell phones were turned off most of the time due to our batteries draining from no signal.
This one made us laugh out loud. It has to be one of the catchiest billboards we have ever seen. And no, I have absolutely zero idea what the intent was but I’ll simply respond with a big Thank You!
Rounding out today’s collection of signs is one I made my wife double back for. As a former Java developer, this sign held multiple connotations. I figure either they like to mainline their caffeine in this town or they have all converted to .Net like me. Which ever way you take it, it still ranks as a classic.
That’s all for now. Check back soon for some more funny images we captured on the way out there. Once I get done with those I’ll dive into the cool wildlife and scenery shots we brought back.
