The population of the Santa Clarita Valley is over 275,000, and within the city limits it is about 200,000. It has a Mediterranean climate with an elevation of about 1200 feet, and is surrounded by the Sierra Pelona Mountains, the San Gabriel Mountains, Angeles National Forest, and the Santa Susana Mountains - all of which create a beautiful backdrop for this popular suburb of Los Angeles County. This creates a beautiful valley with lovely views, including that of snow capped mountain tops in the winter.
And even in sunny Southern California, Santa Claritans experience a special treat about once every 10 years...a sprinkling of snow in our yards!
