Hiking Mt. Diablo

It’s been a while since I posted photos to Flickr (not since I lived in Australia!) but since I got rid of Facebook, I need a new way to share the beautiful sights that I get to explore out here in the Bay area.

Mt. Diablo is east of San Francisco, on the other side of the Berkeley Hills. Brandon and I climbed to the summit (~3,800ft) from Rock City. A gorgeous sunny day, although it was a bit hazy. 8.5 miles round trip.

The Start of the Hike

Sentinel Rock

Steep stairs allowed climbing to the top of Sentinel Rock.

Local flora...

...and fauna!

At the top.

Best part of the day...seeing two paragliders take off and float around the valley.
