The Devil’s foothills

We took the boys on a hiking trail right at the foothills of Mt. Diablo. There was a marathon of different distance goals up to the summit going on by the time we got there. Usually it’s a quiet place with about 10 cars but today the parking lot was full, lots of commotions.

We took a different trail that was not reserved for marathon runners and hikers. It was so serene and quiet — we heard birds, bees, flies, and crickets chirping. We even saw California falcons flying atop the trees.

It was such a great hike, with perfect cool weather.

Here are a few photos.
