Road ecology blog: Public road through private lands. This gate and sign mark a a public land / private land boundary along a public road.

Public road through private lands. This gate and sign mark a a public land / private land boundary along a public road. While the public can use the road, the signage (posted, no trespassing) in combination with the gate is confusing, perhaps on purpose. The "no trespassing" relates to the land on either side of the road, not the road itself. I think it would be more clear and fair to the public to explicitly state that they are free to drive on the road without a problem, but that they cannot leave the road and access the land adjacent to the road.

Some large format prints (limited edition) are now for sale at Freshwater Studio & Gallery in Missoula, Montana.
