Road Trip #1 What’s In A Name?

When driving long distances we have many different strategies to pass the time and add interest to the day. One way to liven the journey is to make suggestions as to the origin of the place names we see along the way.

Some are self-explanatory:

Some require a little more imagination:

The Romans were here??

  1. I love looking at the names of creeks when I’m travelling. We all know ‘ten mile creek’ is ten miles from ‘somewhere’, by ‘where’ no one ever knows. I always try to avoid stopping at places like ‘mosquito’ creek and ‘snake gully’ LOL 😀

  2. We live in a delta area, but don’t have nearly THAT many creeks. Elbow Creek, Cottonwood Creek, Cross Creek, St. John’s River, Kaweah River, South Fork, Middle Fork, Mill Creek, just to name a few. None so colorful as Murdering Hut Creek! Yikes! 🙂
