We’re at the base of the Sierra and have research and recreation relationships with Yosemite, Sequioa, and other places in the Sierra. To honor our great neighbor, we’re naming all of the roads after places in the Sierra. So far we have Muir Pass, Ansel Adams, Mineral King, and Shaver Lake. I told the Campus Architect (my boss) that I’d get him names for the rest of the streets. They can’t already be used in the City of Merced or in the County though so the obvious ones won’t be used. I thought I’d open it up to you guys. In honor of BCRider and his love affair with the Saddlebag area, I’ll open the suggestions with: Conness Glacier Here’s an aerial of the campus January 24, 2007 at 6:41 pm #593753 slhappy 25 Posts Mendenhall Dr., Clevenger Rd., Wit-sono-pa Ct., Convict Pl.,…endless oprotunities to name…both modern pioneers as well as by-gone…Iceberg, Ediza, Clyde…pick a region…how about each of the Minarets.

Theres gotta be a Teabag lake in there or somethin January 25, 2007 at 7:12 pm #593755 Ecobrad 2068 Posts The project is pretty cool. I’m having a great time…best job I’ve ever had. As far as the naming goes I just submitted a the list. I got in some of our favorite spots such as Dana Plateau, Leavitt Peak, etc. and also got one in for Splitfire….Johnson Peak. 😆 I couldn’t resist. Let’s hope they pick it.
