Silicon Valley, California

In my Blog posting on 3/22,  I told of my visit to the museum of the Intel Corporation in Silicon Valley, California. Silicon Valley is a name someone made up years ago to describe the general location of San Jose and adjacent communities involved in the electronics industry. It’s really located in the Santa Clara Valley.

In case you are not aware of what’s here, I thought I’d give you an overview.

First, here’s a view of the area as seen from Google Earth…

Next is a photo from the Wikipedia file about Silicon Valley…

Silicon Valley is located about 30 miles north of my current camping location at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Morgan Hill, California. A real easy drive, although fast-moving and lots of vehicles, on U.S. Highway 101.

I had been planning another trip to Silicon Valley to visit the Computer Museum, but the constant heavy rains mixed with the heavy traffic has deferred that to a future time. My two-week stay at Thousand Trails is now over. I’ll be moving today about 100 miles to the northeast around the area of Manteca, California.
