Rough Road Ahead

Carmi's Thematic Photographic 203 is Transportation

I transported myself up to the Overlook at Cacapon State Park via the Thundermobile on Monday.





















Tired of driving? You can head down to the beach and rent a paddle boat.

Ha! This would have also been good for the Series theme... I love the way the signs progress in urgency.
That's a very cool outlook from the lookout!

Yes I liked the way the signs get more urgent.
"LOOK OUT!!! UNEARTHLY TERROR NEXT 1.5m!!!
Beautiful scenery, Thundra.

I loved those signs. I took most of the sign pictures on the way back down. The road wasn't that bad, although one certainly wouldn't want to try it in a car like mine in any sort of bad weather.

Batt shelter??

You'll be happy to know that I checked that out on the way back down also, Jennifer.

I didn't see any Batts.

Another reference to Cthulhu, so I Googled him/her. Now I get the closing McDonalds reference.

Seems that the park people want to make sure you know what you're getting yourself into there. Great set of photos.
As for the Batt Shelter - did Bruce Wayne default on the mortgage payments on the cave?

lol @ "LOOK OUT!!! UNEARTHLY TERROR NEXT 1.5m!!!

Great shots, thunder! It's like we were with you the whole way, protecting you from THE UNEARTHLY TERROR!

I think that's right, Max. The bank sent some big trucks and they hauled the Batt Shelter away.

Thanks, beege...I knew I'd make it to the top, one way or another.

Must have been worth the drive for a view like that.

Beautiful summer day, I hope you took one of the paddle boats out and drifted aimlessly for a while... we could all spend more time doing things like floating aimlessly in my humble opinion!

Cheers.

I didn't see any Batts.

I think they're an Australian band.

I think they're an Australian band.

He didn't see any Lime Spiders, either.

But the place was lousy with beatles...

Transport scenery is visiting my old high school and remembering how enormous the parking lot is. Everybody drives in Calgary. Or is eaten by mosquitoes.

Gilly said...

Definitely got the impression you are driving along a bad road!! Love the signs.

Nice lake though!
