The signpost is located in Golden, Colorado, on the deck of a bar.[Ronda Collins, 01/07/2013]
A fun place to stop and eat. They have a peanut butter bacon hamburger that's pretty good.[Michelle Norwood, 04/15/2010]
Rock Rest, our large local restaurant/bar, has put out in front a huge direction pole with arrow signs pointing to places all over the earth. It's rather fitting, since Rock Rest stands at an old gold rush crossroads. Rock Rest itself is a peculiar yet oddly picturesque complex, complete with a cobblestone-walled quonset hut, stone arch gateway to the parking lot, cannon and dining deck. Once it still had the prostitute's cribs from when it served as the unofficial officers' club for nearby Camp George West but those were torn out for interior expansion. The great wooden pole may be 50 feet high, with arrows pointing every which direction from top to bottom. If you ever get lost, this is the place to be![Richard J. Gardner, 01/24/2004]
