In southern Utah, follow the arrows to some hiking

The highest compliment you can pay a reporter is to tell him or her that he or she taught you something.

Ladd Egan, of KUTV, I had no idea there were concrete arrows in southern Utah, or in northern Utah.

The arrows were installed almost a century ago to guide airplanes carrying the mail, according to Egan’s report. Now they’re artifacts on mountainsides.

They can also be hiking destinations. At the bottom of its online story, KUTV linked to some GPS coordinates for the arrows.

Don’t get lost on the way to the arrows. That would just be ironic.
