20-Jun-2004 -- On our way back from a weekend trip to San Diego, we planned to stop at 33n117w. It is located just northeast of the town of Poway. We passed many beautiful custom homes and the roads became narrower and narrower the closer we came to the confluence.
Along either side of Oak Canyon Road, properties were clearly marked with "POSTED, NO TRESPASSING, KEEP OUT" signs preventing any travel off of the road. The 117 west meridian lies between two driveways, the house described in visit #2 to the west and, one to the east with a gate across the driveway shown in Picture #2. I was unsure which driveway would lead to the confluence landowner - both driveways converge towards the confluence.
Picture #3 shows my GPS location after we turned around and were heading back west - only 130 meters from the confluence! Picture #1 shows a sign on the land just west of, and looking towards, the confluence.
Analysis of my track file revealed that we came within 120 meters of the confluence while driving along Oak Canyon Road and also that a successful visit would be impossible without prior permission from the landowner.
