Diablo via Mt. Olympia & North Peak   Sucess!

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.

Really cloudy and misty - couldn't see anything from the top. Will have to do again.

Hot!  Sucess!

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.

mother's day hike  Sucess!

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

Summit via Mitchell Canyon over Eagle Peak  Sucess!

Great training hike in hot weather. With a couple of detours, I expect the total distance with about 16 miles.

Auto Mountaineering  Sucess!

Took some time off while visiting San Francisco to drive to the top. The road was long and meandering which required lots of concentration due to all the bikers making the ascent. So if I wanted to take in the view I stopped at a pullout. The bike riders are very aggressive as to ownership of the rode. At the summit parking lot we witnessed one poor tourist with his family in tow being openly berated for his driving skills by a group of bicyclists.

Mitchell Canyon  Sucess!

Hiked this all day with my Dad. Reached the summit then bagged the north peak on the way back down. We took the wide trail/road to the top and then the windy path down from the north peak. Next time would like to do it in reverse
