The amazing clarity continued another day so on December 24th I went up to Skyline Blvd. with hopes of seeing clear vistas. The first stop was the summit of Windy Hill for 360 degree views including the Pacific Ocean and Bay Area. Next was a trail run including Sanborn County Park and Castle Rock State Park. The view of the Silicon Valley, Diablo Range, and Santa Cruz Mountains from Sanborn Park and Castle Rock State Park are fantastic. Finally, I saw sunset from the summit of Borel Hill. High wispy clouds made for a spectacular light display changing from orange to pink as the sun set. I visit the parks on Skyline Blvd. often, but it was a special day. Here are over two dozen of my favorite shots!
It wasn’t just a great sunset… many more photos after the jump!
