I Saw The Marker

I looked for the marker at night, and it took me a little while to find it in the dark. It's between a diner called "Rosie's Country Kitchen" and a gas station. There's a good view of the marker on Google Maps Streetview: https://www.google.com/maps/@38.5864223,-121.3085072,3a,30y,323.89h,77.71t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sczdQvunXbEkkvCRE7VqmHQ!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo1.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DczdQvunXbEkkvCRE7VqmHQ%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D329.50989%26pitch%3D0!7i13312!8i6656?hl=en
