Americans continue to rebel against Barrycades, throwing off the shackles of traffic cones and police tape from Utah to South Dakota to Michigan. The Mining Journal reports that locals and tourists in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula weren’t dissuaded by literal signs of the government shutdown.
…on Saturday, park visitors were disregarding closed signs, police-style tape, construction barrels and hazard cones put up by Pictured Rocks staff.
On Miners Castle Road, half the roadway remained blocked at the park border, but someone had pushed aside a construction barrel, opening traffic to Miners Castle, Miners Beach and Miners Falls.
At Munising Falls, park visitors avoided the blocked off parking lot and instead parked along Washington Street in Munising. Many of the vehicles had out-of-state plates. An 800-foot pathway leading up to the falls had two strings of the tape strung across the entryway.
A woman heading for the falls simply stepped over the first tape.
“Well that worked, huh?” she asked rhetorically.
This line of yellow tape didn’t last long.
