Potato(e) Mountain


While hiking above Claremont on Potato Mountain, Marc Campos saw the top of a water tower below him in which Potato is spelled Potatoe — and someone, he’s guessing grammatically minded hikers, crossed out the E with a “no” symbol made of rocks.

Of course, it’s also possible the rocks were placed there by birds. You know, quail.

    Ordinarily, I don’t find puns amusing but this one of yours is prime.

    While in Boy Scouts, there was a mountain we hiked (I cannot recall its name) that had an elevation of _,_99 feet (can’t recall its exact height, either), so the tradition was to build a rock “tower” at the summit one foot high to make it an even number. Hikers like accuracy, apparently.
