June 28, 2012. You know those signs in the Parks that read “Authorized Personnel Only”? Well, I got permission to travel down two of those roads at a certain Park (whose name I won’t mention). One road was to the “Maintenance Area” and the other went to the “Boneyard”. The Boneyard is where the old equipment and new building materials are stored. My day started at the Maintenance Yard (actually it started several hours earlier when I woke up and ….). I don’t think we really want to go there. TMI. Anyway, the first thing that I noticed at the Maintenance Area was the two contradictory signs I blogged about back in May of 2009. Now I know about the life cycle of signs: Made in the maintenance area, put into use, back to the maintenance area, and finally to the boneyard.
Anyway, I was invited to the sign making shop. I walked around looking at the various signs and sign making tools. I stopped at an area where glass etching used in image transfers were kept. Two employees were nearby. One commented to the other “Look, he is even interested in the etchings.” A vision came to mind of
two naturalists viewing a great ape:
“Look, the big one is being groomed by a female. She’s eating the parasites. They are so much larger in real life.” The Boneyard was interesting, but somewhat anticlimactic after having two government employees get so close to me in the wild. We will be departing this Friday, June 21, 2013 for S.W. Colorado. More to come?
