I’m heading up to Mount Diablo to check out the Rock City area today (duty calls; this’ll be for another column in the Mercury News). It’s my last major section of the park still unexplored. Tons more minor ones, plus all the Morgan Territory and nearby parks. Too bad it’s 60 miles of driving to get there.

If the stars align I’ll post pics & chatter tonight; otherwise, tomorrow for sure (because I know your lives are hanging on when my next post arrives).
