Diseno del Rancho San Ramon (Carpentier) (464,438 bytes)

This hand-drawn map (diseno) shows the Castro-Pacheco Rancho San Ramon Valley, with north to the right. It is a shortened map of the Valley, which extends from today's Crow Canyon Road (San Ramon, CA) to Walnut Creek (CA). Notice the large curve, which leads from the top (west) then runs through the drawing's center. This represents San Ramon Creek as if flows out of Bollinger Canyon. Las Trampas hills and Mount Diablo are indicated as are Sycamore Valley and Green Valley creeks. The northern boundary shows the joining of Las Trampas and San Ramon creeks. The original is in color, with green trees lining the creeks.(click below for color image, but not of best quality) (Description from Images of America, San Ramon Valley, Alamo, Danville, and San Ramon published by Arcadia Publishing, San Francisco, CA. 2005 by Beverly Lane and Ralph Cozine for the Museum of the San Ramon Valley. www.museumsrv.org )
