Roach Coach

Delivering lunch to small companies and work sites is this catering truck going south on Zanker in the noon-hour.

Jet Contrail

When the weather is cooler we see more jet-contrails like this one. It is probably a commercial jet heading for southern California. Just after I took this picture another pedestrian commented “Chem-trails, right?” I repied “right.” Yes, mostly made of CO2 and H2O which are indeed chemicals.

The Lot at the Skyline

Early afternoon at the Vista Point lot at the intersection of Skyline Blvd. and Big Basin Way just west of and above Saratoga, CA.

The View at Skyline

Through a clearing in the brush and trees we look towards Silicon Valley. Bright and hazy. The road below us is Big Basin Way curving towards Skyline.
