DeLorme Easter Eggs

While trolling through the DeLorme gazetteer for the state of Washington, I noticed something strange. I was looking at the possible hiking opporunities north of Mt. Saint Helens, when I happened upon a symbol that didn't occur in the legend at the front of the atlas.
It looked to me like a very furry person with mucho oversized bare feet. I thought to myself, Hmmm, Bigfoot? (actually, in truth he looks more like Captain Caveman).

I did a google on this and came up with this site. It appears that there is some sort of goofy erroneous picture in every atlas that DeLorme makes. In Oregon it's a covered wagon. In Northern California it's a wine bottle pouring into a glass. In Idaho it's a picture of Evel Knievel in his rocket car jumping over the snake river. In New Mexico there's an alien head down near Roswell. These things look just like the symbols for fish or boat launch or trailhead or something like that, so they're hard to see.
I also can't vouch for the older atlases, as this one was published in the last couple of years.
Have fun looking for them.

Dear blogger,

I found your post while looking for info on
href="http://www.normism.org"> koine
while I found your post

to be very interesting, it was not the exact type of info on

href="http://www.normism.org"> koine
. So anyways I thoght I

should drop you a few lines and thank you for the good job that you are

doing, and at the same time spread the good news about this site that

demystifies a lot of concepts like

href="http://www.normism.org"> koine
. The new age prophet

Seyed Bahram Mirkalami while demystifying subjects like

href="http://www.normism.org"> koine
, states that he has

declared heaven on earth with the power invested in him by "God". And

anyone who accepts this declaration will have immortality and peace in

life right away. Here's the link one more time:
