Walk in the park  Sucess!

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.

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.

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

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.
