Monday was a great day for a hike on Mt. Diablo, even though the sky was a bit hazy. The temperature was perfect (about 70) and the wildlife was out in abundance. We saw two different species of snake that I had never seen except in pictures and even though the grass is starting to turn brown, there is a tremendous amount of wildflowers that more than made up for it.
I ended up taking so many pictures that I ran down the battery on my camera so some of the pictures are from a hike I did in November.
Whatever you do, though, don't tell anyone I told you about this because the trail we hiked on is a Secret Trail. If you don't believe me just check the map or the trail signs. They'll tell you.
Trailhead is at Macedo Ranch and the end of Greenville Rd in Alamo. Parking is $6.00 via a self-pay box.
