As I stated in last week’s post about organizing the USA border signs, I’ll round them up according to the Census Bureau’s categorization.
It goes as follows:
Region 4 (West)
Division 8 (Mountain) Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico
I’m such a nerd. Anyhow, I’m thrilled I actually have photos for every state in this category!
That won’t be the case with the next couple of posts on this topic. Eventually the plan is that all states within the regions will be visited and consequently those posts updated. ETD = working on it.
Many of the photos were captured in a car or camper whizzing by on the highway or freeway, either in the driver or passenger seat. Some photos I was driving and snapping away. For the love of sanity and your life, don’t do this. I obviously have a death wish. I will say this, I made sure I was not close to other cars nor were vehicles on either side of me, or oncoming cars approaching. If I missed the opportunity because I considered it too much of a risk to other drivers, I would just exit the next available opportunity and come back around and try again. It’s one thing to risk my life, it’s another to risk someone else’s.
In some cases I was able to stop on the side of the road where I wasn’t in danger of killing myself. But then there were moments with that as well, what I thought was safe… and then a big rig came out of nowhere and was this –><-- close to my nose. And I don't have a big nose. My heart came outta my mouth. My deep urges to get the perfect shot sometimes outweighs any sense I have. But I digress.

Most photos were captured by me, some by Peter Thain.
Editing and Processing of photos were performed by me.
Have you seen these state signs before?
If not, is this what you were expecting?
Do you like/dislike any of them (ie. design, slogan, or maybe the background landscape)?
