Delacroix, Louisiana: End of the World Sign

End of a road is also the End of the World, according to a very visible sign. The reason: remoteness and hurricanes.

End Of The World Sign

There is a unique sign at the end of Hwy LA 300.

[Todd, 05/09/2019]

It was perhaps unwise for the End of the World Marina to advertise itself on the sign that formerly stood here. Hurricane Katrina destroyed that sign, then hurricanes Rita, Ivan, and Gustav swallowed large chucks of Delacroix Island permanently. This is still a long way from anywhere else; the new sign seems more apocalyptic than geographic.
