My parents and I stopped here in 1959 on our way across country from Maryland to California. I didn't have a clue where it was! There is a lot of interest in the Twin Arrows but not much mention of the two "Monsters" that stood out front. I'm enclosing a picture of me standing in front of the Monsters. It was black and white and I colored it at some point.[inferno55, 04/01/2016]

You can skirt around the concrete barriers from the east side of the loop created by the westbound off-ramp.[Scott Jones, 05/12/2015]
Blocked off by concrete K rails. Trading post looks like it's closed. On the side of highway construction. This is a great drive-by -- take a picture without getting out.[Angela P, 08/25/2014]
