130 East  (Mount Hamilton Road) in California 

This shows the Pacheco Pass area, and the back country of Henry Coe State Park in the distance. In the foreground, you see the backside of the hills that form part of the East San José skyline. Most of them are 2000' - 2800'.

This is in the east end of Grant Ranch County Park. You begin to see the observatory fairly close up.
This terrain is similar to 180 in the foothills on the way to King's Canyon National Park, or 58 west of Tehachapi.

We  had to turn around about three miles east of Mt. Hamilton itself. This must be about 4000' up.
