2. Denny Creek Marker
Denny Creek flows from some springs about 1/2 a mile south from the marker, on private property and is only accessible via a gated private ranch road. This road was once the original 'Old Hwy 140' until it was re-routed the same year the plaque was moved and re-dedicated in 1955.
