Driving

The log cabin is below 'the snow line'; the imaginary line or altitude which usually does not get snow when the rest of the Sierra Mountains are being dumped on.


I found out today why the highway going from the valley to our new town, has this sign.


There are several of these too, I don't like that these two warning signs are so close together, on a steep highway, which lacks adequate guard rails.


Notice how steep the hill "up" is??? Well, the hill "down" is just as steep.


And just for kicks you need a few "Rock Slide Area" signs.

I stayed safe at home today, until noon, when I thought all was melted. It was.

Okay those signs are a bit scary and as for the doe below, too funny! She looks mean.

Well, at least there's a handy, dandy tree right in front of the sharp turn sign...just in case you miss the sharp turn on an icy road filled with rocks!

My heart stops, just looking at pictures and thinking about driving on that road. That is NOT my kind of road.I would be just going very very slow, any one want to pass, go right a head.

What is the name of your new town?
