Text of sign:

 

Water Wilderness

 

You are looking south across thirty miles of water into an area farther from a road than any place in the lower 48 states.  Except for

Grant Village there is no significant development between here and Jackson, 100 miles south.  Grant Village - the cluster of 

buildings at lakes edge - is open for a few months in summer.  A park road traces the western shore.  These exceptions only 

underscores the vastness of the scene.

 

Windfalls of spruce and lodgepole pine barricade the lake's south shore.  In winter the area becomes even more isolated as several

feet of snow bury forest and frozen lake.  Yellowstone Lake may be ice-free only five months a year.

 

Graphics on the sign

 

In addition to the text there is an inset photo of a man in a canoe and a picture of the view of the horizon pointing out the location of

the Tetons, Flat Mountain, Mt. Sheridan, Frank Island, Grant Village, West Thumb, Elephant Back Mountain, Gallatin Mountains, 

Steamboat Point, Electric Point.
