Hiking Contra Costa - Mount Diablo In The Clouds
Mount Diablo in the Clouds
A Contra Costa hike was the perfect way to meetup and visit with new acquaintance, Lynn. We trekked first up a few steep hills above the lovely village of Danville, then along past playwrightEugene O'Neill's old place, and ended up walking back on a portion of the Iron Horse Trail, a Rails to Trails project that runs forty miles through nine towns and two counties. Along the way I got to pet a number of happy dogs and visit with their human companions. What better way to introduce ourselves to each other? Next time we get together in Contra Costa County, I hope we'll have time to hike Mount Diablo State Park.
