I remember my first drive down. Couldn't figure out what that was from a distance. Parked and walked up to and around it. Spent the night at the La Pinta.

A similar monument on a smaller scale was built along the "Libre" road back in the day and has been disintegrating since. Not sure of the KM marker

Can you be more specific?

Oh, maybe the entrance to a development near Popotla, just past the Fox Baja Studio set? There was a structure to mark the entrance and then the project never happened after the fancy entrance monument was made? This is just north of the Km. 33 marker:
