Hale Avenue North and Santa Teresa Boulevard North
This set is from March 2, 2007. Hale Avenue and Santa Teresa Boulevard
are extensions of Highway 25 in Santa Clara County.
The name changes from Hale Avenue to Santa Teresa past Palm Avenue.
Most of this ride is rural, but quite a bit is actually uninhabited
parts of San José.
The hills and landscape are green from wintertime rain in these photos.
Traffic is moderate on this stretch of back road, and it is used to
bypass US101 and Monterey Highway. Really old maps show a freeway extension of
US101 following this route up to the IBM plant on Bailey.
This is just past Llagas Ave and here the road almost leaves Morgan
There are few houses between here and San José.
This is the only major development at the north end of Morgan Hill on
Hale. A new boulevard is supposed to cut over to Monterey Highway from
here, but it has not been built.
This is just south of Tilton Avenue, which may be closed in the future.
