trail signs

Sharing photos of signs that I’ve gathered while I’ve trailed around, signs that we may not want to miss. I believe it is important to know where we are going and what to expect on certain trails ‘coz when we practice mindfulness and knowing, we are eliminating ignorance. Today’s coffee: at home again with a dark roasted Seattle, paired with steamed sweet potatoes. Coffee photo taken using hipstamatic app – Lucifer VI lens,  BlacKeys B+W film & Standard flash. Linked with signs, signs.

minneola road exit

The road exit is just before the Calico Ghost Town on I-15 and about 2 miles north is a dirt road that brings you to the Calico Early Man Site which I hope to explore the next time we pass by this area. Btw, we have to exit here & stop on a side street near the abandoned gas station to add more air pressure on our car tires. It was a very quiet & eerie place but I forgot all about it ‘coz I was so consumed with the beautiful sunset. Linking to signs, signs. Have a nice time trick or treating tonight and keep safe everyone!

And in the lexicography it is alphabetically the last place name, at least in English alphabetical order. A little history: in my researches (wiki), it was a man named Curtis Springer who gave the name, claiming to be the last word in English language; he then established Zzyzx Mineral Springs & Health Spa in the area in 1944, where Soda Springs is a natural spring and his spa catered to the senior citizens. Also he used the springs to bottle the water and provide drinks to the travelers. Springer was then arrested in 1974 for misuse of the federal land. And it is now being managed by the California State University for their Desert Studies Center. ***this is a …
