Aerial photo of pool location, Santa Maria canyon

The pools are located in the bend, approx. 3 miles
east of the mission.

Arroyo Santa Maria (from canyon to Gonzaga Bay)

To the right (south) in center of picture, is the branch wash that leads up to Las Palmitas.

Canyon and old Indian trail (just east of the mission valley).

The attempt to build a road in the 1960's to Gonzaga, ended here. An old trail continues on. The 'King's Highway' is to the north (left) of the canyon. This is the gap between the east and west roads, that awaits another Mur and Dave adventure!
