Where should we look for the rocks ?

Been cruising around some mountain road areas in the north east

Some signs say "Falling Rock Zone" and some say "Fallen Rock Zone"

I guess it's in the timing.

Travel I40 between Knoxville and Ashville, seems like there is a rock fall every other month. Look for where they are working on the road then wait.

If you see a sign "Watch for Fallen Rocks" send them in and they should send you one.

I don't know about the east but here in the west "Fallen Rock" was a young Indian boy, the son of a chief. He went on a long journey and was lost. The chief ordered everyone to watch for him, hence all the signs ("Watch for Fallen Rock").

It is!
Falling rocks will be overhead... fallen rocks in front of, or beside, you.

I enjoy the signs that say "Watch for Falling Rocks". It sounds more immediate and exciting, like we are about to be in a movie action scene. I had often wondered what you are supposed to do when you spot them. The signs in BC have clarified it for me. They read:
"Falling Rocks - No Stopping for 2km"
Zigzagging the motorhome for the next two kilometers as rocks are falling around us. Now that's excitement worthy of Bond himself.

After you see a rock sign, park on the mountainside of the road. They will eventually come to you. Better rock picking during heavy rain.

Have you ever seen a deer standing next to one of those "deer crossing" signs waiting to cross the road?

The Deer crossing signs I see, make me think they can fly over me.

Now Moose, they don't fly.

No, but I have seen deer that ignore those signs and cross where ever they want to.

Hmmm, learn something new every day, I always thought Fallen was a color. Imagine that!!
