The Golconda Arrow was visited in the early morning hours, which made the light perfect for taking pictures. The air was clear and fresh, and the sky a bright blue. The access to the arrow is several miles up a dirt road. Thankfully we were in a jeep because at one point I had to use 4-wheel drive, as there was loose dirt and rock going uphill. From the arrow we could see I-80 off in the distance. The surrounding snow-capped mountains were just beautiful.
The arrow is basically complete, except the pad where the generator shed sat. All that remains of the pad is the outside foundation.
The total length is 58 feet.
The pilot would approach the tail of the arrow on a compass heading of 130° (SE), and then exit the arrow on a compass heading of 107° (E-SE).
(All measurements and compass headings are approximate).
