Trace wire from alt. to battery.

Don't know as I haven't unburied the alt yet. Was hoping I wouldn't have to. I am wondering how the hot wire to the alt. routes to the battery? Does it junction at the solonoid?
I don't rely on coincidences. Charged fine until I replaced starter. I hate to take off the right side of the car to get to the Alt. Am thinking maybe the hot wire between the batt and alt became disconnected somewhere. It is hard to see at the solonoid without taking it apaRT AGAIN.
