For years I've wondered who designed the "elk" sign for New Mexico. The hump in the back, the hind legs too short...I mean this is a state known fort its population of artists and this is all they could come up with? Then, on our last trip home, I noticed a different sign, this one near the Raton pass--also of an "elk". I'm not sure it is really any improvement. I'm sorry my camera wasn't out on the way up the pass in Colorado because the "bear crossing" sign actually looked like a bear! What do you think?
