Vacation ambling has been going well. The car has been piled high with snacks and drinks and the 2-year-old nephew has been gifted an iPad to stay alive with Disney movies. The adults really enjoy listening to that…
So as promised I have been taking pictures of street signs that are randomly weird, make you laugh, or completely terrify you. Sometimes they are all three and you hit the jackpot.
Today is a jackpot.
Now I know what you’re all thinking, “Duh, you were probably near Mount St. Helens” and normally I would applaud your logical skills. But we weren’t at St. Helens. And let me tell you, when we were at St. Helens there were no evacuation route signs. (My theory there is that they know you have no hope to evacuate if it explodes, so why even bother to spend the money on signs.)
Anyways, I digress. We were driving several hours away from St. Helens when we came across this little nugget of a sign. And we initially dismissed it. Then we laughed. And then the entire car full of people decided we’d probably need to decide where the hell the volcano was and if the one road national park we were at was really the best option considering it was two hours until you got off said road.
So if you’re going to Mt. Rainier, be advised, you could die in a fiery volcanic explosion. But according to everything they say, it isn’t an explosion that is the main concern, it’s the earthquake knocking free something on top and causing a massive debris flow all over your life.
And you will be caught totally unprepared because you only hear about St. Helens being the volcano.
Consider this your public service announcement. Go visit, but bring skis to escape the carnage.
