Looking down on Morgan Hill. El Toro is
the low peak to the right of center. Above it are the foothills
McKean Rd, and the mountains on the horizon are the Santa Cruz Mountain
(Summit Rd runs along them to just above Watsonville). Santa
Watsonville, and Capitola are all behind this set of mountains and
El Toro burned partially in July 1985, and the Santa Cruz Mountains burned horribly during the same month.
Loma Prieta and the rest of the Santa Cruz Mountains are covered in
and clouds. You can make out snow clearly in the clearings in the
and along the ten lane wide dirt roads used as fire breaks.
These next two photos are from 3/4/2006, on the final downgrade on Dunne Ave (west of Thomas Grade.) This is looking towards the area by US101 and 129.
This is looking towards the hills close to Bailey Ave.
