If you’ve crossed the city limits into Upland, you’ve no doubt noticed their new markers. There are 10 at different points around town. They began going up a year ago and the final ones (which needed Caltrans approval due to freeway proximity) went up in the past few weeks.
The marker at the top is on Euclid Avenue at 7th Street; the one below is on Mountain Avenue at the 10 Freeway.
I may be writing a column about them soon. What are your thoughts? Do you like them or dislike them? How would you describe them?
They remind me of the monolith in “2001: A Space Odyssey.” But so far I haven’t seen any primitive Uplanders worshiping it.
