Alum Rock Park in the morning

San Jose’s Alum Rock Park from Penitencia Creek Road.


Alum Rock Park, after an overnight rain in March, clears the mind. On a weekday morning, there’s nobody around, the air is fresh, the grass green.

The perspectives from the park can be memorable, looking up at the steep slopes. On a mountain bike, you can make your way to Sierra Road. It’s a hike, literally for some.

I prefer the much friendlier climb up the service road.
