IT READS ...Stop...The area ahead has the worst weather in America. Many have died there from exposure even in the summer. Turn back now if the weather is bad.
If you see this sign, take it seriously. I have myself, had to turn back because it was bad weather ahead. The weather changes from the tree line to the ridge. There have been many people who have died up here, even in the summer do to weather. On a nice day, it can be so wonderful up in the White Mountains but it can also be very dangerous. You will see this sign a lot around the Presidential Range mostly. The winds, the heat exposure, the cold winter weather if you decide to hike earlier then June. I have tried once to go up here in May and it was bad. I had to turn around and went back down. So, please take this sign seriously, it could save your life!
