School crossing. From a distance, it looked like a woman carrying an upside down watering can. Just a case of decal peel. Here's the real thing, with a very quaint fire hydrant from the village of Socaires:
Animal crossing means vicuña crossing. The wild cousin of the llama, we saw quite a few vicuñas grazing peacefully. It didn't seem likely that they could leap as pictured above.
The sign I wish I'd photographed. Having driven 10 kms out of San Pedro to reach the well-marked turn-off for Valle de la Luna, and another two on an unsealed road, we discovered this exit to the park was cerrado. The other road at the fork had a sign, in Spanish and English: "No passage. Mine fields." Backtracking a few kilometers to arrive at the more obscurely marked entrance to the park was well worth it.
