Cloud Level

By Allen59
Taken from Mount Hamilton about two thirds of the way up to the Lick Observatory... one of my favorite drives. It's a little more than 19 miles to the observatory up Mt. Hamilton Road which rises over 4000 feet and has 365 curves, one for each day of the year. The views of the Santa Clara "Silicon" Valley are spectacular, and from the top you can clearly see San Francisco 50 miles to the north.

What's surprising is that probably 90% of the people in Silicon Valley have never taken this drive.

Seriously? That's a real loss for them!!!

The picture is so beautiful!!! ^^

beautiful shaped hills :)

Yes they are, and to watch them change from the green of winter to a golden hue in summer is beautiful.

Great View, the Clouds look so close to the Hills :)

They were no more than 50 feet above my head.
