Steve owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Qi, Karl, Sophie and Steve

~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
