Welcome to Merced County. From this summit to Los Baños, 152 was rebuilt in 1973 to bypass the then new reservoir.

Here is San Luis Reservoir. This is not a natural lake. It was man made in 1973. Rain water is stored here. In the summer, water from the aqueduct is pumped into it. If you go boating here, beware of deadly winds in the afternoon during the summer.
