Heather and I did some reconnaissance last weekend in San Fran to see if it's a city we could live in. Well, to cut to the chase, it is. We've been to SFO to do the touristy thing (Alcatrez, Golden Gate, Napa, etc.)....but we've never done the Silicon Valley area (Palo Alto, Mountain View, etc.). My company is creating an office in Silicon Valley, so we're contemplating a family move. That way I can be close to the hub of activity at my company and the family can try something new....life's too short, right?
Northern California is so neat. It has an interesting blend of Florida, Arizona, and the north woods of Wisconsin. Where else do you see super colorful flowers, under a palm tree, next to a Redwood pine tree?!
We're working on renting out our place in Chicago and if that goes well, we just might be on our way to SFO. Nothing official as of right now, but we just wanted to keep everyone posted as to where we were in the process. Here are some pics from our weekend trip:
These are from the downtown Mountain View (seems to be top choice so far) area:
And here's San Carlos (in foothills)...neat town, but a bit of a commute for Matt...
