I rediscovered this photo while looking for the UCI Student Center pic. One of us took it on the way back from a camping trip with UCI’s Campuswide Honors Program in the Angeles National Forest in April 2000. IIRC it was along Angeles Crest Highway.
A permanent sign isn’t necessarily the best way to indicate a transitory condition.
Another gem from Joshua Tree (actually Yucca Valley), courtesy of Jason, who first spotted it:
OK, I’m all for spiritual retreats and the like, but what the heck is “mentalphysics?!?”
(Thanks to Jason for the photo!)
Here we observe a specimen of that rarest of species: the Walking Tent.
And here are two natives, apparently acolytes of the Tent, worshiping at its altar.
On Highway 62, in Twentynine Palms, we saw this first coming from the other direction. On the other side it says, “Where if not now?”
At first we thought they had just messed up the wording, but when we came back along the same road and saw “When if not here?” it all made sense.
