Does cycling count?  Sucess!

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 :-)

Nice day  Sucess!

Great day for a hike. We went up Mitchell Canyon and down the Back Creek trail.

Diablo Done  Sucess!

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.
CA Cohp #9, CA P3k 3/46.

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.

Really cloudy day.  Sucess!

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

Beautiful views from the summit.

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.
