      From the north end of Petroleum Club where it starts just south of Taft, if you drive a mile or less down PCR, there is a dirt road on the west side of the road that goes up a not-steep, moderately low hill. LETHs are in this area. I don't recall that there are wells in this particular vicinity or that the road is blocked off or anything, although I could be mistaken.
