This is the Steelman Marker located on Steelman Marker Trail in Carroll Valley. The marker was placed in 1977 on top of the old site originated in 1924. This is one of those shots I got because of the colors, shadows and lines. I am not sure that I picked the best of the bunch, but I liked how this one filled the frame the most.
