Back to the Mountain | Mt. Diablo

October 27, 2013
Contra Costa County
Hikers: Cathy, Laura, Denise
Distance: 6.82 miles

Wow. It has been four months since we have done any serious hiking. Felt good to be back out on the trials again! Unfortunately, it does not look like we will be doing anymore epic hikes, we will have to keep them relatively short (5-7 miles). Our old knees just do not want to cooperate.

Charlie Brown tree. :)

Finally! We have been waiting to come across one of these beauties for a couple of years now. Mt. Diablo is overrun by these creatures every year between late September and mid-October. We never seem to be in the right place at the right time - until today. Late in the season - one lonely tarantula - just hanging - waiting for us maybe. :)

And we saw a couple of bunnies today too!
