Long Description:
The disk is set in a concrete sidewalk on the northeast corner of the bridge on Greer Road over Matadero Creek. It is undated. This bridge was rebuilt sometime after 2000 so we assume the reset was placed at that time. The view to the southwest, presented in one of the pictures, shows an interesting blue railing between the sidewalk and the road. It is called Watershed Walk by Deborah Kennedy and dated 2004 as indicated by a plaque on the bridge.
