Additional Information

Sitting at home saturday evening, thinking about what to do on sunday. I pinged a few friends to see if they wanted to do Mt St Helena or Mt Diablo. At 9:15 the next morning, we started hiking at Mitchell Canyon.

Great day, all around! Blue skies and prefect temperatures! High was in the low 60's, so we had to carry very little water. We even saw a few poppies!

The only downside was that the summit Visitor's Center was closed, so I was denied the Doritos and ice cream that I was looking forward to.

Remember: get the peaks done in cooler weather. Spring (or late winter) is the best time!
