Abandoned At Lake Ozark

Lake Of The Ozarks Missouri at Bagnell dam. We made a quick detour and stop here on our way home from Columbia, Missouri where we attended the Pedaler’s Jamboree.

Abandoned Airway Beacon Arrow

I’ve known about these arrows for some time but never thought to look to see if there were any in my area. A friend alerted me to this one which I’ve ridden by many time not knowing it was there. Today I rode out to take a look.
The Transcontinental Airway System began being built in the early 1920s and guided airmail pilots across the U.S. A tower with a beacon and a generator would have set atop the concrete arrow. This was a spur off the transcontinental route that was between Amarillo and Kansas City.
