This is an interesting bit of history. Perhaps you did not know of it either. Early navigation directional assistance – who knew! These Huge Arrows Can Be Found All Across America. And This Is Where They All Lead To. ~Alice

I can only assume that before the Internet and GPS, taking a cross country road trip was just like a real life Oregon Trail and everyone died of dysentery in Oklahoma. But as it turns out there was a time when all you had to do was follow the giant arrows. Like some sort of real life Mario Kart.
All over the country, 70-foot concrete arrows can be found in remote locations. Follow them, and they’ll point you out of the desert.

They come courtesy of the US Postal Service’s Air Force and will point you all the way across the continental United States.
