Theme Day: The Color Red

I was in Ely, Minnesota a few weeks ago. While listening to one of their radio stations, their slogan was 'the end of the road radio'. I thought of that radio slogan when I took this photo for the theme day. I was at the end of a road in Cottage Grove along Highway 61. In the distance you can see the sign for Cottage View Drive In theater.

I like your picture, But could you please tell me what those road signs are, I'm very perplexed! Also, i like how you linked to an earlier photo, just gave a lot more lift to the picture knowing whats at the back..

Like my description says, I'm at the end of a road, these signs are just warning signs that alert you to not go any further with your vehicle as the road ends right there.

Dsole said...

Interesting road signs! And neat photo! :)

Normally I see Yellow signs used in that sort of location so the Red really stand out. No excuse if you don't see them.

Are those red squares reflectors? I assume there is a street directly in front of the reflectors so people don't drive straight into the field.
