Famous Road Signs

 Zzyzx Road is on Highway 15 near Baker, California. I had a theory about what a Zzyzx was but I was wrong.

The sizzling sound of the name zzyzx combined with the remote location seem to ignite the imagination. Check these websites for zzyzx information. http://www.abandonedbutnotforgotten.com/zzyzx_road.htm and http://www.howitgotnamedthat.com/ . My personal theroy was that a Zzyzx is a genus of sand wasp, I was wrong, it turns out that the sand wasp is a Zyzzyx.
