Pictures of the Santa Clara County Parks

by Ronald Horii

Back in 1997, I started a webpage on the Santa Clara County Parks. This is an update, with newer pictures. This is a gallery of some of my favorite scenic pictures that I've taken of the County Parks over the years, since I started taking digital pictures in 2001. I live closest to Santa Teresa, Hellyer, and Almaden Quicksilver Parks, so I have the most pictures of those parks. Hover your cursor over the pictures for descriptions. Click on the links for more pictures of the parks.
