Hike with the Clouds

Rancho San Vicente Open Space Preserve, a Calero County Park Entrance

These photos were taken on a calming hike in the Rancho San Vicente Open Space Preserve, one part of Calero, a Santa Clara County Park. This is in the rural area of south San Jose. The photo above is looking north towards the more populated urban areas of the city off in the distance.

Guadalupe Creek Trail

Guadalupe Creek Trail

Looking east towards the Diablo Mountain Range from the Guadalupe Creek Trail in San Jose as the sun goes down behind us. Actually, as the sun falls back behind us in our travels. Standing here, in San Jose, looking east, we are traveling at 825 miles per hour towards that sky just beyond the horizon. The sky, stars, and sun all flying by as we spin around the earth’s axis. I imagine it like we are in a convertible going straight ahead to the east and the sky above is flying towards us and over us, then lost behind us over that west horizon until we complete our circle and come back around to here in 24 hours.
