Early NNV readers will remember that Ed told us about our
nearby Ranchos in the first story he wrote for NNV over a year
ago now - note the location of Penitencia Creek and Alum Rock
(from Santa Clara County Ranchos by Clyde Arbuckle and Ralph Rambo, 1968)

Rancho La Polka, where Selestina
and her husband raised cattle,
was clear down here by Gilroy
(also from Santa Clara County Ranchos)
