What does the sign say?



This sign was seen at the head of a man-made path that meandered through a wide expanse of green grass in a state park. I wondered what it was trying to say...

UPDATE: I agree with those that say the sign means we shouldn't wear thick-soled, heavy shoes on the grass. But why not draw the RED line from (as I look at it) upper left to lower right and cross out the soles? :)

The more I look at it, the funnier it gets. No hiking, hike but don't step on any lines... not your trail buddy...

Happy Weekend, & great SWF post.

I have no idea but it's funny for sure. A great odd shot too.

No foot-wear allowed?!?!
Probably the park is meant for ice-age men without footwear only :P *kidding*
I've got no idea what it means, but sure it's weird.

Happy Weekend Mary {hugs}

No shoes with cleats?

As to my header - we really had a good time when I took that picture (and a bunch more) from the observation level of the Statue of Liberty. We had 2 of our grandsons from SC along for a quick visit -took them over and under the Hudson, up, down and across Manhattan. Maybe next time we will cross the East river into your area.

I think it says "do not wear shoes with treads." Weird one, Mary!

quilly said...

Clearly -- see all the X's? -- this sign was put up by someone with a boot fetish and it is an offer to kiss your foot wear!

Well at the risk of spoiling the fun--that's a badly rendered "Don't walk on the grass" sign. Parks don't want you walkign off trail because it damages the land when a ton of people do it.

And I know, you all probably knew that.
