Why more people are noticing San Jose’s best view now

With shelter-in-place, walks are something people look forward to now. And they are noticing San Jose’s best view more than ever. It’s a good thing they voted to KEEP that square gray building at the top, isn’t it? How else could we find…Mt. Umunhum?!

Yup, the top of Mt. Umunhum used to be a military base, and after it closed, it took decades to clean it up and open it to the public. Some wanted to take down the gray building (which is all boarded up). But, those who are born and raised in San Jose (like me), spoke up and wanted it to stay – because that’s something we grew up looking at, and that’s how we find the great Mt. Umunhum!
