MiroslavaThird time a charm!  Sucess!

This was one of the best hiking afternoons so far! It's my third time on the mountain. On two previous attempts my father decided to turn around for no good reason. He was claiming it was going to get dark before we were back at the car, as if it was something new. This time I was having none of it! We started late at about 3 pm at the first turnoff past the North Gate. I walked for about half a mile gaining 300 ft in the process. Not bad! Then we took Pine Canyon to Barbecue Terrace and followed Summit trail to the summit. Kind of. My father took a wrong turn in the process, heading downhill for a while before recognizing his error. We had to take some cow trails to get back on track on the south slope. I really had to push my father on at this point. He started stopping every 50 steps or so as if he did not know we were running out of daylight. I was telling him to keep walking and to catch up with my mother every time he stopped. So I think I can claim a lot of credit for reaching the summit. Anyway, we were on top at about 6:40pm. Beautiful views from the observation deck! We saw San Francisco and snowy Sierra in the distance. Now, finally content on reaching the summit, I was able to fall asleep. I woke up somewhere in the woods in complete darkness. We were still going down. Turned out my father forgot a flashlight. Yet another blunder he made today! It was getting scary in the dark but I did not say a word. Anyway, we crossed some creeks and got back to the car at about 9:30 pm. I was so glad to be back in my seat! What a day! 12 miles roundtrip, 3300 ft change in elevation from car to summit and more than 4000 ft elevation gain total (only counting 200+ ft sections of continuous gain)!

I did it RT from Berkeley and made the ride a 100-mile & 10,000 ft gain loop. I think this was a lot harder than hiking up the mountain, and all still under muscle power, so I'm counting it :-)

Hiked St. Helena in the morning and then did this one as a drive-up. Could see the Golden Gate and Pacific well, but the Sierras were hidden in haze.

Probably the only mountain I've ever driven up. Still blimmin gorgeous with the clouds drifting around in the morning light. Couldn't see too far though, a view of the Sierras with that much snow on would have been something. At least got to see them a little closer up while heading for Mt. Shasta earlier in the week.

Took most of a day to do this from Marsh Creek Road. Was thankful for the shade as it was a hot one. Encountered one threatening rattlesnake, two deer, a jackrabbit and a lot of tourists (only near the summit/road). Aside from the tourists, it was a great escape from the surrounding suburbs.

First time in the park. Did the four peak look: Eagle Peak, Mt. Diablo, North Peak, Mount Olympia.

I was impressed with how well signed the park was. As long as you have a trail map, it would be hard to get lost.

It was ridiculously hot. I drank 3 liters of water on the way to Mt. Diablo. I drank more there, refilled my water bottles, and finished another 3 liters on the way down. My keychain thermometer said 115 degrees F at one point. I don't trust the thermometer, but I'm pretty sure it was at least above 100. I had salt crystals all over my skin when I finally dried off. I could have filled a salt shaker.

Hiked up to Eagle Peak with my mom for mothers day. Very hot day but the bluebird skies and sun were enjoyable. We were joined by a big black tarantula walking down the trail on the way out to the car. There was also some sort of bike race on the mountain with a finish down at the parking lot
