~5k of elevation gain, plus some rarely visited trail, made for a good day of hiking around Mt. Diablo.

Honorable mention for Baltazar, who took an alternate route.


Two minutes into the hike, everyone is zipping up a familiar trail


Heading up Falls Trail, which still had some waterfalls


Trudging up to Prospectors Gap


Waiting for everyone to catch up


Everyone together on new trail


Edge of the park--time to turn back


Half-way around Diablo


On Oak Knoll Trail, which several people missed despite large arrow


Heading toward Deer Flat--it's all downhill from here
