It’s been cold out here, so I’ve not been in my unheated shop this week. Instead Heather and I took a hike in Alum Rock Park. This park has been a part of San Jose since 1872. My mother told stories of going there as a child in the 1930s and Heather took her children there in the 70’s. I haven’t been to the park in at least 30 years, so it was interesting to see the differences.
The day was clear and cold. We were treated to nice views over the Santa Clara Valley. We were a bit saddened to see how the city is encroaching on the park. This use to be so far out-of-town, but now there are houses on the hills overlooking the park.
Here are a some pictures of the day:
That’s it for this week.
If you need my – I’ll be making hot chocolate.
