The end of the road, chap

This sign at the dead end of the Glacier Highway has become a popular target among bored residents of landlocked Juneau who own guns.

That's because it's difficult for them to get out of town. The capital of Alaska is tucked between the Gastineau Channel and a rugged coastal mountain range and can only be reached by air or water. The end of the 40-mile paved road is just ahead of this friendly sign.

(Hey, e-mail us a photo of your favorite "signz" with a description of them and we'll consider posting them...)

Alaska is a beautiful place ... to visit. I loved the time I spent there, looking at glaciers, crystal-clear rivers and the abundant wildlife, but I could not imagine spending winters there. I bet the suicide rate is higher than average.
