It's next to the Bay Area, anyway.
From July 2012
Del Puerto Canyon is between San Jose and the San Joaquin Valley on California State Highway 130, and so I decided it was still technically the Bay Area..
The landscape changes dramatically throughout the year as the winter greens everything up, and late spring begins the drying and browning of the grass. At times in winter or spring the rivulets rage like mighty rivers from the runoff as rain soaks the hillsides.
It is a sight to behold.
