Silicon valley overview

On our trip to San Francisco we also visited Silicon valley and checked out Googolplex, Apple office and other companies in Cupertino.

Entrance to Cupertino

Once we were in California there was no chance we would miss seeing silicon valley. And of course one of the town we visited was Cupertino - the home of Google and Apple.

Since it was saturday the streets were really empty. Almost no people or car at all.

Road trip through California

Of course there are much much more companies then we've seen like Ebay, Yahoo, Oracle, Intel, Cisco, AMD, Adobe but we just didn't have time for all of them so we left silicon valley and headed for the next place on our list - Big Basin Redwoods State Park.
