14-Mar-2002 -- It was a windy sunny day in Los Banos and my dad and I drove over from Santa Cruz as he had busniess in the valley the next day. We drove to the end of Billy Wright road to a gated fence to what seemed to be a large cattle ranch. After getting our bearings [we] headed over the fence and down a dirt road to hunt for the confluence that appeared to be about a mile away. As it turned out the confluence was over two rather large steep hills. My father had grown up in Los Banos and knew the name of the rancher so if we ran into the owners we thought he would know them. After two other fence lines and seeing the cattle in another section we arrived at the confluence. A nice view into the central valley of California and the flat fertile farms below. Back at the car we left to hunt for the next confluence of the day near Kettleman city.
