My post about the Dangers of the Everglades has turned out to be hugely popular – I guess lots of people Google that phrase. With that in mind, I present this encore performance: Dangers of Arizona! All the danger! Double the Signage! You may not survive! Especially if you are a car….
Dangerous road?! But, hey – it’s a Wildlife Sanctuary!
Just sit back and relax, for the next hour or so.
Hope you like curves.
I love this one. Is that the sign for the road disintegrating?
I had to pull over I was laughing so hard when I saw this one. Not a semi truck route, eh? This sign was MILES after the other ones (above) up a rocky, one-lane dirt road high in the mountains. Thank you, US Forest Service, for this amazingly helpful sign!
Does this mean that I use normal paved roads at someone else’s risk?
74 miles?! That would get you from New York City to northeastern Philadelphia.
Watch for smugglers.
And for wildfires.
Even AFTER the fires are over there’s danger!
There is no sign warning that your car will get very, very, very dusty.
Which would make passing other vehicles coming in the opposite direction very problematic. Luckily, I didn’t see any.
I like how they specify that this particular sewage water is the polluted kind.
Advice #1 on this notice: Avoid Confrontation. Sage….
In case you missed the first bear sign. Speaking of vehicle damage, the vultures of Arizona don’t mess around with merely chewing up your windshield wipers.
They have been known to cut the emergency power at the most inconvenient moments.
All of this dangerous outdoor travel made me want to stop at this nice little nature museum on the outskirts of Portal, AZ.
Hey, what the heck? Dangerous AND venomous, eh?
All of these photos were taken by me within the span of less than three days last week. My suggestion for a new state motto:
Arizona: bad roads; good signage.
Ok, I think I will.
