Last week my husband, Jim Handy, took a few photos from the parking lot of the Church on the Hill in San Jose’s Willow Glen district. He was taken with the clouds and thought they’d make great photographs.
This first view looks across Silicon Valley toward Los Gatos with the view of the Santa Cruz Mountains ahead. The low point in the hills on the right side is where the town of Los Gatos sits (it’s where Highway 17 goes through the mountains to the coast). These areas near the coastal range are often referred to as “the west valley”.
The next one is a view toward downtown San Jose and Silicon Valley generally. The hills on the right are the east foothills.
