Famous Road Signs, Dead Man's Curve

     This sign is located just outside of Sierraville, California on Highway 49 and refers to the fifteen miles to Downieville.  It's a good warning as there are some really tight corners that are at best flat and at worst off camber.  
     Deep shade on the curves keeps moisture from evaporating.  We were there in mid November and it was quite cold, I'm betting that there could be ice on those curves at night and early morning.
     So, thanks for the warning.
