Wonderful shot

I just wanted to add, that's a great picture as well as an excellent lesson in perspective and vanishing points.

Timz got it

Spot on, found it on google maps, 72 years later, excellent job.

Regardless

Another great 'wallpaper' shot; terrific sky.

McCune?

First guess: the white pole is Milepost 149 and the switch in the foreground is the one at 35.52764N 108.591W.
