    I looked today and saw none at Guy's now picture, but here is one a little further toward Tabernacle across from the Carranza sign at both of Guy's now and then locations. It is near the west entrance to the lot. IF it is not raining this morning I will take a closer look. Have things changed so much in 40 years?

    The general area has not changed so my photo is taken by the monument. However, I stood at the monument and took my newest photo and the Then photo may have been taken 50 or so feet on either side of it. He may not have been standing right at the monument even though I think he was.

    I went back today with your picture and Guy, you were so close. I first found the tree, very alive, and then went back to the lot and stood where the oak trunk was to the right of the pine.

    Thanks for the project. I have been bored with all the rain. We had a tropical downpour just after these pictures. Several inches.

    Very nice Ed! I will go back and try and park my car at the proper location as well as stand in the correct spot.

    In 2003 I visited a location with a few other individuals and took the top photo and then forgot about it. In 2016 I obviously was at that location again and took the bottom photo. Last night while going over my 2003 photos I realized I had been there before.
