I'm always amazed by what I find when I take time to get up early and take a walk before work when I travel for business. I worked in Mountain View California for four years and still visit there a few times a year since moving to Dublin. It was only on this most recent trip that I took time to explore Vista Slope, just across the street from my office.As I walked up the hill and looked out over the parched brown landscape, something caught my eye. That's Stanford's Hoover Tower in the distance!
Climbing further, I found excellent views of the Googleplex nestled in the valley below, Silicon Valley, that is.
Vista Slope connects with the Steven's Creek Trail and you can follow it all the way to the San Francisco Bay.
It's definitely a worthwhile area to explore with a cup of coffee in hand before work.
