I recently went to Mars and thought I'd post a couple pics from there. And if you didn't know, it is located a bit north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Yes, your science books had it all wrong.
And across the road from that sign, is a much bigger welcome sign. But this one you really have to read closely to get it. Funny!
Main Street Mars. Yes it's Mars Bank, and a welcome to Mars banner, but did they really have to even do the street name Mars-hall???
And finally, yes, you can buy Mars property...
Don't know if I've posted a close-up of one of these before, so here is one. This is a dark-eyed junco, which in West Virginia is typically the slate-colored variety. Nice little birds that tend to fly near roadsides in the evening so I catch them in the bat nets fairly often.
