Proposed Geomeme: Signposts!
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
This weekend I’m spending some time scheduling some things to autopost here on Georneys while I’m in the field. Due to some delays, I’m not exactly sure when I’ll be leaving. However, sometime in the next couple of weeks I’ll be departing for Alaska for approximately 2 months. I may not have much time for blogging while I’m in the field, but I’ll try to schedule enough things to autopost that my blog readers won’t completely forget me. The “Monday Geology Picture” posts will certainly appear as always.
While I was browsing through some pictures for my weekly picture posts, I ran across a few pictures such as the one above. That is, I ran across pictures of me posing with posts covered with signs indicating the directions and distances to various notable locations. Not always perfectly accurate, these features are mostly tourist attractions, I think. I’m not sure what these features are called– does anyone know if they have a name? Lacking another name, I’ll refer to them as “signposts”.
I always enjoy posing with signposts and make a point of doing so. I think they make for fun pictures. Does anyone else have signpost pictures to share? Let’s make a geomeme of it!
I think you’re confusing your “geo”memes. I’d be more partial to one that includes signposts like these: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rschott/1445474312/in/set-72157594512147823 or http://www.flickr.com/photos/rschott/310302552/in/set-72157594398945654
Ron: Fair enough :). All geographical and geologically related signposts are welcome in this meme!
Let some of these geological road signs inspire you.
Since Andrew’s collection already includes my Atacama geologia sign here are some others
For your original meme here is Land’s End, England
