Jack writes: “Just a few dozen miles to the west of SLO42 and the very first beacon arrow I ever saw in person. This picture and my visit were made in 2015. As you can see, it looks like someone ‘salted’ the ground around the arrowhead – nothing grows there. Made me wonder if some Beacon-keeper had trouble with weeds overgrowing the marker and decided to do something about it! This one is easily visible on Google Earth.”

Jack has also submitted some photos of the site of beacon #42 from different vantage points. He writes: “The arrow points east (towards Omaha, of course). Easily seen once you walk a dozen yards off the road. Tail, square tower pad and arrow head are all present and complete.”

Thank you for your contributions, Jack!
