Here's another one of mine. I like this picture because there's just so much in it:

Florida's Turnpike north of Fort Pierce/SR 70. Always thought those "median" palm trees were pure tourist kitch, yet a reminder of long ago.

Georgia State Route 223 is a road that travels from Cedar Rock to just southeast of Grovetown (near Augusta & Fort Gordon's Gate 2).  Below is a photo of the road's eastern end that I took today.  It is just northwest of its eastern terminus, looking toward the northwest.

Taken at a Chevron station at the intersection of CA-58 and US-395. This is also the closest I've ever gone up to a BGS.

Forgive my ignorance, but what is a "BGS"?  Something Guide Sign?  What about "Big Green Sign"?
A BGS is the abbreviation for "Big Green Sign." Like the one I've shown here.

Yes, Big Green Sign.  To me, that seems like more of a MGS, though.   :sombrero:

Yes, that was my intent.  Now unlearn it, because I just made it up.
