I am always on the look out for special signs and every once in a while, I am blown away by someone’s creativity. Since I am a self-proclaimedpunster, I certainly appreciate this type of humor.

Returning from a jaunt in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, not far from Mt. Whitney, the roads were steep and curvy. We don’t often get to see a sign this extreme!

**NOTE** – A Murder of Crows is a term used to refer to a large gathering of crows. Only having two at a meeting would be a mere attempt! How did this term evolve? According to Quora these are the possibilities:
- For instance, there is a folktale that crows will gather and decide the capital fate of another crow.
- Many view the appearance of crows as an omen of death because ravens and crows are scavengers and are generally associated with dead bodies, battlefields, and cemeteries, and they’re thought to circle in large numbers above sites where animals or people are expected to soon die.
- But the term “murder of crows” mostly reflects a time when groupings of many animals had colorful and poetic name
After hiking in the Sierra Nevada mountains one afternoon, we returned to our car to begin the journey back to our hotel in Bishop, CA. We had no way of anticipating we would have this kind of gasoline economy! We might have done even better, but the car stops counting at 99.9 MPG.
BTW – The automobile is a 2015 Subaru Forester! The image was captured with a smartphone.
