Photo of the Week: Glenwood Drive in Scotts Valley

Glenwood Drive looking south toward Scotts Valley. Scotts Valley High School is just down the road.

Glenwood Drive in 1921 at the same location as above. What happened to all the trees?

I saw this photo of Glenwood Highway in a book recently and immediately recognized its location. The alignment hasn’t changed since the road was built. The concrete roadbed has been covered with asphalt. The photographer climbed up the side of a hill, now covered with oak trees, to get the shot.

The houses on the left were built in the early 2000s. Scotts Valley High School just down the road opened in 1999.

    I recognize this too. The calm before the big climb up Mt Charlie in the Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge.

    What book were you looking at that contained the photo? I live in that area and would be interested in seeing the book.
