Calaveras - Sierra Rd Loop

By Ann Zeise,

Date: January 30, 2002

We had some snow over the night of January 27-28, 2002, so on the 29th, after the roads were sanded and clear, my son, Scott and I drove up in to the hills above Milpitas and San Jose to get a closer look. We took Piedmont Rd. to Calaveras, up into the hills, and then back down again on Sierra Rd. to Piedmont once again. It was about an 18 mile drive.

The apricot and walnut grove on Piedmont Rd. near Calaveras is covered with mustard.

Palm trees glare at the audacity of snow in their ranch entrance off of Calaveras Rd.

Looked like a perfect sledding hill to Scott. Too bad it's private property.

What could we say, but, "Oh, Wow!"

OK. What's all this talk about Zen Diva California cows who've never seen snow? So, now we've seen snow. Enough already!

Mt. Hamilton and its observatories in the snow, from Sierra Rd.

Another view of Mt. Hamilton.

View of San Jose from Sierra Rd. I-680 loops on the right into downtown San Jose. It is probably Penitenia Creek canyon on the left. Rain falls in the Santa Cruz Mountains in the distance.

Monument Peak up close with Mt. Diablo far in the background. We could see for miles!

Ranch in the foothills along Sierra Rd., Santa Clara County.

Mule Deer enjoying the new, fresh, green grass on the hillsides.
