Critter signs along the way

 Critter signs along the way

Over the last week, I've been organizing the thousands of photos I've taken over the past few years and noticed that I have a pretty good collection of animal crossing signs.

Like a lot of people, I love seeing wildlife while roadtreking. Somehow, I started taking photos of them as we traveled.

From there, well, it sort of evolved into all sorts of signs about critters… of all sorts.

I know. Taking photos of critter crossing signs is a weird hobby.

Do you do anything like that? Collect photos of certain things or themes?

  • Mike, I am not sure I should admit it but on my first trip to Europe I was so amazed at all the different lavatory styles I took pictures everywhere I went. Of course, there was nobody using the facilities at the time! I think I’ll find something much more interesting when I get on the road, like the goats grazing on the roof of the general store at Coombs, BC weird and wonderful things would be ideal.

  • Love all your signs….Bigfoot….really!

  • Thank you Mike. That was fun to see.

  • I collect picture of weather vanes. The ones along the shore are particularly fun. The ones in the Lancaster, PA, countryside are also usually lovely.

  • Yes. We always try to get a shot of welcome signs when crossing into new states and also take a “family portrait” of Carolyn, me and the RT beside NP entrance signs.
