Steve owes a writeup! -- Pictures by Karl, George and Steve

Two new peaks and over 50% new trails to INCH in a park we've visited 28 times previously--Mt. Diablo still has plenty to offer. Since it had been raining several days prior, we schedule a visit to Mt. Diablo's seasonal waterfalls. Would the trails be a muddy slog? Would we get rained or snowed on the whole time? Would people get lost due to the numerous trails?

1-2-3 INCH

Well, for now, let the pictures tell the story:
