The Forgotten Giant Arrows that Guide you Across America - Air Mail Beacons - http://www.messynessychic.com
One of the giant 70 foot concrete arrows that point your way across the country, left behind by a forgotten age of US mail delivery
To follow arrows is human-behavior-meets-graphic-design 101. So it may not surprise you to learn that these gigantic concrete arrows dotting America, from east to west, are for wayfinding.
giant_arrows_america_3 70-feet concrete arrows are scattered across the country. Follow them and they’ll lead you out of the desert.
On August 20, 1920, the United States opened its first coast-to-coast airmail delivery route, just 60 years after the Pony Express closed up shop.There were no good aviation charts in those days,so pilots had to eyeball their way across the country using landmarks.
The Forgotten Giant Arrows that Guide you Across America - http://www.messynessychic.com/2013/11/15/the-forgotten-giant-arrows-that-guide-you-across-america/
In 1924, the U.S. government needed a way to ensure that pilots on the airmail route across the country would find their way to their destination at night or in bad weather.
Before radio the US Postal service began air mail service cross country. In 1924, the government built enormous concrete arrows every 10 miles along established airmail routes to help pilots trace their way across America in bad weather & at night. Bright yellow, they had a 50' tower w a rotating light & a tiny house for those who maintained the generators & lights. They were visible from 10 miles high. Many can still be seen. Radios made them obsolete.

Mount Sneffels (14,158) - An area on the western flank of Mount Sneffels gives the appearance of volcanic crater and due to a similarity in appearance to Snæfellsjökull (Snæfells) in Iceland--whose glacier caps the crater like a convex lens (Snæfells was featured in Jules Verne's A Journey to the Center of the Earth)--the Colorado peak was henceforth named Sneffels.

Alta, Utah-Albion Basin Albion Basin, near the ski resort of Alta, Utah is renowned for its abundance of summertime wildflowers, and the area offers several great hiking and biking trails. During this visit I encountered a moose, and briefly considered a career as some sort of wildlife panorama photographer, until I came to my senses and realized that any such career could be short lived. - Image ©Martin van Hemert
