signs

I've come across in my travels...
Lots of bears--both black and grizzly--roam the Canadian wilderness in Jasper and Banff National Parks.  This sign is on a large trash bin.


sign in Castries Market in the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.  I wrote about this market HERE. Of note is that this market made National Geographic's "World's Best Top Ten Food Markets" list at #3!

This bear sign is in Glacier National Park in the US.  I saw 13 bears on my last trip here, some of them fairly close.


 
I'm including this just because I like the photo and this path.  This walking/bike trail is 75 miles long and goes through 5 counties and 11 cities/towns.  There are a number of connector trails and more are planned.  It's not far away from where I live.The slippery bridges have now been paved over and so are much safer.

  3. Bears.... Bears in multiples....ummmm....no...no..not going to go there.
    Loved the bear proof sign. Saw a video on youtube of a bear that dines every night at a German restaurant...he pulls the bins out into the street...dumpster dives in each one and then goes on his way. Too wonderful!! Love the sign for no parking too! Great S post!!!

  22. I met a bear once that came within 10 feet of me. Thankfully, it wasn't too hungry. Once was enough for my lifetime! The 75 mile trail looks enchanting.

  23. hahaha ! I could use the first one but not for bears but for dogs ! Fortunately I have never seen people spitting here. Do not piss is a sign for some cats ! (not mine of course, they are well educated)

    ReplyDelete
  24. i love the "do not piss" notice. very elegant

    ReplyDelete
  25. LOL! I like the 'no spitting' sign! I wish they placed more of them for people to see. And when I say 'people', I mostly mean men... :( blah!!

  27. They sure have some silly signs posted... That one of the path is super cool - it reminds me of the saying, "Every journey starts with a single step."
