Invisible Lines

it must either be a stab in the dark or possibly a well laid out plan that has gone awry when it comes to the creation of property division lines be it for countries, provinces, cities, townships and then let's not forget to include our own backyard. 

even national parks and reserves seem to have no rhyme or reason as to how they are separated by roads and highways. i wonder if it comes down to the migration of wildlife or possibly the weather might have been taken into equation. for whatever the reason be though, even an odd one, is that these lines are travelled on day in and day out with no one being the wiser.

where the nursery is located we must pass through 10+ road signs informing us that 'you are now entering Wood Buffalo National Park' and then 'you are now leaving 'Wood Buffalo National Park'. strange as it seems though is when you can spot the next sign just down the road from where you are standing right now.

but don't get me wrong though as i do find the information essential to my travels, but at the same time you must admit though that it's quite comical to be entering and leaving (unless of course that there is a surcharge for the comings and goings) that many times when just driving on this one particular stretch of road but actually all i can think about are the people that have had to go out to erect all of those signs just so i can know where i am.
