Delta Breeze

This stretch of hills on Vasco Rd, which runs between Brentwood and Livermore in the delta, is taking good advantage of our wonderful "Delta Breeze."  The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta lies at the intersection of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers; the American River merges with the Sacramento River upstream in Sacramento.  And the delta is what fills the San Francisco Bay to the west.  It's an extremely beautiful and unique stretch of land and water, and because it has such a low elevation compared to the surrounding hills, we often get a strong breeze through here, which makes the summer heat more bearable.
