This 'Category' is for the many 'Scenic Stops' along 'Highways and 'Bi-ways' for 'Waymarking' a particular interesting or scenic area or site.
Expanded Description:

Along many roadways in mountains, desert or sea shores 'Roadside Stops' are especially created with a parking area, or even a picnic area.
Some have safety guard rails and not just "pull off the road sites"
The majority will have 'Interpretive' signs explaining the nature of the area or scenery.
A 'Scenic Photograph' of the area viewed as seen from the 'Lookout Area' is mandatory for your waymark. It is to be posted on the 'Waymark' page.
If there is an 'Information Sign' at the location a legible photo must also be included in your submission, or in the absence of such a sign a photograph of the parking area must be posted to identify it being a legal road-side pull off area.

Instructions for Posting a Scenic Roadside Look-Outs Waymark:

Sample heading: Name of "Look-out" then location/city/town,) ~ State, Province etc.
> A 'Scenic' photograph of the area viewed is mandatory for your waymark. It can be posted on the face page, if you are able to to do so with 'html' (about 600X450)
