#1: Water tank

(visited by Ray Sumner)

28-May-2001 -- I was in the area on Memorial Day with our relatively new GPS receiver, so I decided to check out this confluence for a possible return visit with students or friends.

The previous visitor, Ross, was not impressed with this place, but at this time of the year, on a cool overcast day, there was bright color everywhere - green foliage of oaks and shrubs, and lots of yellow flowers, mainly mustard. I drove to the end of County Line Road, and walked uphill from there. The most striking feature is a large water tank with the name Gordon A. Greenslade in large letters [#1 and #2]. I went up a road to the tank and scrambled from there. Actually there is a network of dirt tracks, obviously used by horses, motor cycles, and even the occasional hiker, I guess.

When I returned, two boys were about to ride their bicycles down into the gully. One of them wore a Santa cap. They were reluctant to have their picture taken, but I promised it was OK [#3].

Unfortunately the disk in the camera was playing up, so I did not get a good shot of the GPS screen.

Note from the project: None of the pictures that came out were within 100 meters, so unfortunately we must count this visit as an attempted one.
