I've always enjoyed taking photos of route markers. I remember as a boy being fascinated by each state's unique symbol or state outline to represent a state route. I couldn't wait to visit another state and see what shape the sign was!
Here are a number of photos from my collection.
Covington County, Jan. '97. But what state am I REALLY in? Confusion!
Downtown Eudora, AR, Nov. '98.
Clear Creek County, Jun. '99.
Fairfield County, May '92. Entering the state from New York on the Merritt Parkway.
Sussex County, May '92. Driving north on US13 near Laurel.
Washington, D.C., Nov. '94. Not a great picture, but it's not like you can stop anywhere on the road!!
Franklin County, Nov. '92. A long stretch of lonesome highway.
Oahu County, Mar. '91. Somewhere on the north side of the island!
