Arrow Statues: Twin Arrows, Arizona

The Arrow Statues plunging into the Colorado Plateau are all that remain of advertising for the Twin Arrows Trading Post in Arizona.

Publications International, Ltd.

The now-shu­ttered Twin Arrows Trading Post survived for a spell after Route 66 was replaced by I-40, but the store/motel/cafe complex closed in the 1990s.

Just like the nearby Two Guns Trading Post (also closed), all that remains of the Twin Arrows Trading Post is the advertising -- which includes the twin arrows embedded at the foot of the Colorado Plateau.
