Today’s Awesome Thing is: This Sign
Why I think It’s Awesome:
First of all, it appeals to my sometimes sophomoric sense of humor. However, I also love this sign because it prompts so many questions. Why is “unknown” in quotes? Is the outlet of the lava tube actually known, but un-reportable? If it really IS unknown, why don’t we know where the outlet is? Could you send an expedition to find it? How much would that cost? Would they find anything interesting?
This sign can be found in all its glory at a rest stop on State Highway 97 in Siskiyou County, CA. If, for some reason, you’re in the area, it’s worth a stop. Not only because it’s the only place to “take a rest” for quite a while, but also because it’s a gorgeous rest stop (as these things go). Don’t believe me? Here is the sign in-situ:
And if that’s not awesome–in the original sense of the word–I don’t know what is!
