According to weather reports, it was going to be well into the 100s in Henry Coe, so I rescheduled the hike to Mt. Diablo. That's not to say Mt. Diablo would be cooler, but at least there is plenty of water along the way. . .and if someone died, it would be easier to get the remains out. As it turned out, temperatures touched the century mark, and you could buy a Coke at the summit--so civilized!
