One day — a couple of years ago — on a stroll through the ‘Capital of Silicon Valley,’ I came across this mural beside one of the ‘light rail’ stations in the downtown area. I’d like to call it the Diablo mural because this mural from San Jose, CA looks like the dry, rolling hills of the Diablo Range that lies east of the city.
The Diablo range is made up of pretty-low lying rolling hills that are dry for the most part of the year. The post — Vistas from California’s Devil Mountain will show you what the mountain range looks like when it is in it’s dry stage. Come winter and the hills come alive and makes a landscape of green rolling hills. See that here — Snaking through several shaded of green.
Coming back to the Diablo mural, I see that the Artist is Jet Martinez.

I went around the station to find a better view of this wall art.
