Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 25 (Warning Signs)

Warning: Stay on the Trail

Don’t forget that National Parks are not zoos or arboretums and can be dangerous.

Every national park has warning signs to denote that although there are trails which are maintained and some amenities may be available, these areas are wild. They have animals, large rocks, crevices, etc. It is up to each individual to keep alert. The best advice I can give is “Don’t take chances.” If something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it! This photo was taken near the beginning of the Four Mile Trail from Glacier Point.

NOTE – The sign indicates that there had been only four rescues up to this time in the year, but bear in mind that the picture was taken at the very beginning of their “busy season.”
