The road sign says...

+-------------------------------+
| Hilso Trailhead             4 |
| Quaking Aspen CG            5 |
| McGaffey CG                 8 |

+-------------------------------+
   the numbers are:  4  5  8  2

   the math is:  (5 - 4) * 2 = cuberoot(8)
   more math:  (5 - 2)! - cuberoot(8) = 4
   more math:  5 - 4 = log(8 + 2)
   more math:  4! / 8 + 2 = 5
   more math:  (5 - 2)! = avg(4, 8)
   more math:  8 - 5 = avg(2, 4)

   rsAgeEval:  8^2 - 5 + sqrt(4) = 61
   rsAgeEval:  5! / 2 + cuberoot(8) / 2 = 61
   * RoadHacker was 61 years young when he found this road sign.
    
   rs42Eval:  5 * 8 + 4 / 2 = 42
   rs42Eval:  2^5 + 8 + sqrt(4) = 42
   rs42Eval:  (5 + 2) * (8 - sqrt(4)) = 42
   rs42Eval:  5 * 2 * 4 + cuberoot(8) = 42
   * 42 is the "Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything"

   rs37Eval:  5^2 + 8 + 4 = 37
   * Why rs37Eval? 37 Heaven @ http://thirty-seven.org

   rsCardinalityEval:  sqrt(5 * 8 - 4) - 2 = 4
   * There are four numbers is this road sign.

   rsPiEval:  (4! - cuberoot(8)) / (5 + 2) ~= Pi
   * 22/7 approximates Pi rounded to nearest hundredth (3.14)
     3.1415926535897932384626

   rsPhiEval:  ((8 % 2)! + sqrt(5)) / sqrt(4) = Phi
   * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399

   off-by-one rsStateEval:  5 * 8 + 4 + 2 = 47-1
   * New Mexico was the 47th state admitted to the Union.
