A yellow diamond shaped sign was screwed to the side of a tree alongside the road. It warned, "Caution Critters." A number of possible critters were drawn in silhouette on the sign, such as a skunk, a dear and a rabbit. Can you identify the other critters?

A gondola ride takes folks from the lake level up into the mountains and drops them off where all the ski runs start. Near the top of that ride is a viewing platform. One of several signs pointing out sites visible from the viewing platform was this one that read, "Mount Rose, Elevation 10,776', 20 Miles."
