Golden Spike, Council Bluffs IA

See?!?  HUGE!!!  This was the first shot from the vehicle - base stands approx. 7' tall.

According to Roadside America, the monument is 56' tall, and marks the eastern terminus of the Union Pacific Railroad. The monument's dedication, April 28, 1939, coincided with Omaha's premiere showing of the film, "Union Pacific." Recently refurbished.
