Santa Clara Valley

Except for the haze, you can see a long distance to the north from the crest of the San Gabriel Mountains along Santa Clara Divide Road. Shown here in the middle distance is the Santa Clara Valley in the suburban area where the Antelope Valley Freeway (Highway 14) crosses the Santa Clara River. Note the vegetation difference between the chaparral-covered, unburned hillside in the foreground and the burned area in the middle distance.
