Glowman/Green Man San Juan de la Costa


The last reports I could find said the paint was fading fast. When I last saw it the colors were still pretty good. I thought I'd like to walk up that way again, but I'm not sure I remember the arroyo it was in. Does anyone have GPS or Km marker?

Can't help with that location but here is a highly entertaining "Glowing Man" story from Gene Kira:

I think Harald (4x4abc) can tell you where it is or was?

Of course I used the search, and I found a link that purported to have the coordinates: http://community-2.webtv.net/Boojum1/Glowman/ but it is gone and I thought some one might have remembered them.

That was an old web page that vanished when WebTV ended about 12 years ago.
Because the Glowing Green Man was vanishing, there wasn't a need to preserve it on VivaBaja.com, or so I thought!
I will search my emails from Tucker and see if it is still there.
Harald, I am surprised!

That pic looks like bad art, let’s call it what it is, ugly graffiti.
Entertaining story about glow-man,… but really bad art.

It has been about 15 years, but as I remember it, the arroyo was one without a rancho at the mouth and like most arroyos had a road up it. Anyone else have a recollection? How about the arroyo at the bottom of the steep downhill 'S' turn where the road drops down to the beach again?

Great... Maybe Harald will know which one that is, now? Searching with Google Earth may help spot the same place?

I was just out there today
but the description is too vague
all canyons have wild surfaces, caves and vegetation
even if you knew the right canyon - finding that glow stick is difficult
only someone who has seen it and has good location memory will be able to find it

The painting was on the left-hand side at least a mile up the arroyo.

Is it the arroyo 4x4abc posted a photo from?

I have no idea which arroyo 4x4abc went up, but I'm thinking it is the one called El Sauzoso on the Inegi topo map.

I'll check it if the gate is open
everything has a gate now
I remember that there is an old road in that canyon
about 4 km or so

I finally had a chance to explore the arroyos along the road to San Juan de la Costa. I think the green man is/was in Agua de Yepiz, but that arroyo is totally fenced off. I'd go to the nearby house to ask for permission but for the 4 car-chasing dogs that are resident there.

Is it the arroyo on the above map just north the name or south of the name?
Thanks!
