After seeing all the photos of Mount Diablo with snow on it last weekend, Doc and I decided to go on a 12-mile loop starting and ending at the Mitchell Visitor Center / Parking lot. Well, there is no longer any snow there whatsoever. What a difference a week makes! It was almost hot, even.
But, at least everything was lush and green from all the rainfall we’ve been getting!
We had to do a lot of hustling, because yet again we slept in and got to the trailhead late in the day (12PM) but we made it! And we didn’t even get benighted.
