Ha! Popped up on facebook.
I'm hoping this was photoshopped, rather than an actual mess.
But those AirStream owners do have a certain reputation....
Thought is was Shade Tree worthy !
 
Funny!
Pretty convincing for about 30 seconds. The shadows under the truck and the rock on the cliff match.
But the right side of the photo is darker and crisper than the rest of it.
 
I would call it a compelling argument against GPS - it looks like someone blindly followed their GPS without looking at a map!
 
I drove Needles Highway today. I was talking to the park ranger who said probably once a week an RV gets stuck in one of their tunnels. I thought, no way would anyone ignore those road signs when driving something as expensive as a motorhome. Fast forward a half hour... I came out of a tunnel with a clearance barely large enough for my car (I want to say it was something like 8 feet wide and 8 with change feet high) and a guy in a motorhome was waiting to get in on the other side. I told him what the ranger said and he was visibly angry and said (a quote that the kids and I have used all day the rest of the day), "well the pictures online show motorhomes going through it." Hahahahhaha ummmm..... nope. Not this tunnel Buddy.
He ended up having to back down the road until he could turn around

The Needles Highway is an amazing and scenic ride. We made the drive in our 4x4 pickup and had to pull the mirrors in to get through the tunnels. There is no way a Motorhome would make it. That said the Zion- Mt Carmel tunnel is a great experience in a motorhome. You have to be measured to make sure you will fit and then they stop traffic in the other direction and a ranger gives you an escort down the center of the tunnel. You can read more about it here: https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/the-zion-mount-carmel-tunnel.htm
 
Been there many times on a bike, as that area is a motorcyclist dream. I've TWICE seen TT's wedged in a tunnel. Completely screws up traffic for hours.

That's actually an old Warn winch magazine ad from the 70's...long before Photoshop.

Yes it was but it is still a product of negative manipulation. Lots of things that can be done in Photoshop have been done in a darkroom for years.
