Mirror this, State Departments of Tourism

A glorious view, mountains, forest, crystal clear waters of the lake and ice fresh air.

Hordes of international tourists, old and young.

This needs a very serious approach to all the infrastructure, right?

Maybe in Australia.

Here, in New Zealand, they (probably quite an official governmental institution called the Department of Conservation) managed to drop a small creative thingy onto the scene.

Thing is, the Mirror lakes are supposed to have a reflecting surface when it's not windy. Hence the name.

So they have installed an upside-down sign that should reflect nicely onto the surface, saying, in readable language after the reflection, "Mirror Lakes".

A small, tiny thing, really.

Making all the difference between "yet another tourist site" and "the place that made my day better".
