Observations and Notes

Dustin writes:

I’m not exactly sure, if what I stumbled on was indeed one of these so called arrows acrossed America, but I wanted to share with you in hopes that you would be able to better direct me to a confirmation or not. I was recently visiting back in my hometown and hiking some on trails, where a friend and I stumble on what appeared to be a large concrete arrow with two square pads that resembled your other images.
