IIRC there may be a few original Pony Express milage markers with distance from/back to Sacramento, along US HWY 50. My mother worked at Pacific House above Placerville, back in the 1930's. I may be mistaken, but believe it was also a stage stop and PE station.

Cool photo! I spent part of my summer vactions outside of Carson City, near the old prison. It's all houses out there now and the prison is gone. My grandfather, built the miner's monument in Virginia City about 1960. Your photo reminded me of my brother and I playing in the sand and sagebrush. We could go anywhere we chose, but had to be home before noon, before the afternoon heat set in. Remember the canvas waterbags everyone had on the front of their cars, back then?
