152 East in Santa Clara County, California

This is where 152 gets notably steep. This has been heavily used by commuters since about 1993.

Here are two pictures of Lovers Leap (Elevation 1160'.)
This rock formation is visible from most of the South Valley. 152 is an unsigned scenic route from the summit to US101.

152 East is in a fairly tough climb here. Most 18 Wheelers can only do 25 mph up this grade.
These hills sometimes get snow in cold winters. In El Niño years they get extreme rainfall.  There is a big grade right after this photo.
