Please say it's a joke

Please tell me this is some school project you once did. If not, I'm not sure if this is funny or sad. Your caption's great, though.

Re: Please say it's a joke

No joke - Mt. Diablo State Park offers some great and strenuous hiking in close proximity to the SF bay area. However, the true summit has a structure built on top, complete with a parking lot, etc.

Re: Please say it's a joke

I wish it was a joke. I thought the Mount Tamalpais summit was bad. But this was the pits. Thank you for your vote.

Maybe I didn't summit....

I saw this picture before my hike to top of Mt. Diablo yesterday. I did not see this official summit anywhere, but I think the reason was that it is located in the visitor's center, which was closed due to power outage. I ended up going into the rotunda, which is just a bit higher.

Well you missed out on that great view of sheetrock. Maybe next time.:)

Re: WTF!?

That is what I said when I saw it for the first time.

The structure houses a giant survey/signaling system. It was really important for surveying California, as Diablo has ridiculous prominence for such a small peak.

The summit peeking out from the floor is rather amusing. The worst is you still feel compelled to stand on it. LOL

Why are you making fun of my crowning achievement?

Re: thingy

Cool, let it be known that I did it without the aid of supplemental oxygen, rope or Sherpa.
