Yes, They Really Need this Sign

warning sign la chua

Since we led our first hike, and people showed up to hike a nature preserve in flip flops and sleeveless tops, we mention before starting that nature is not “(insert name of theme park with cartoon mouse)”. Any time you hike in a natural area, no matter how close to an urban or developed area, something else lives there. Sometimes they are not cute little squirrels or rabbits, but snakes including the venomous kind and maybe even alligators. We generally get a laugh.

I’ve seen many versions of warning signs before, this is the first I have seen that gives visitors who may be new to wild areas a comparison. I like it.
