“100ft Bright Red Arrow!”

It's 100' tall. It's bright red. It's a huge sculpture of a red arrow with its tip plunging into the concrete... This huge red arrow has marked the Indian Plaza shopping center for decades. The center was completely rebuilt a few years ago, but they kept the arrow since it had become almost a landmark. The mayor has been pushing to pass a sign ordinance in Abq to forbid commercial signs that are more than about 6 feet tall. Existing sign owners would have a few years to tear down their big old signs and replace them.

Now THIS is awesome! You can see it from down the road. It's now in the Whole Foods lot.

In a Whole Foods parking lot. Hard to get a good pic because of all the cars.

I drove past this frequently when I lived in ABQ without ever considering non-residents might consider it a photo op or roadside attraction. I mostly considered it a local landmark for navigating the city. It would be a real shame to ever take it down though.

Good photo opportunity. Was sad to see some jerk had parked his truck right in front of the arrow. But oh well. Still a good stop.

So, I neglected to read the description or look closely at the picture, so therefore did not notice that it was in fact in a shopping center. But nevertheless, it was still a wonderful photo (not foto) opportunity for a road trip.
