Your comment about the orchards brought back a flood of memories of the
Santa Clara Valley when it still have more orchards than concrete. I can
remember looking down over the valley from Skyline or the Saratoga Gap
and seeing blossoms--plum and apricot--from the Santa Cruz foothills to
the Mt. Hamilton range.
Thanks for the jolt to my memory!
