"Mt Diablo View"
Location: Mission Peak Regional Preserve, Fremont, California.

When the dense fog rolls into the bay during summer months it can appear like a vast ocean from the top with dominant peaks sticking out like islands. That is Mt. Diablo in the distant and I was quite happy to see it this way for the first time. I have been on this trail so many times but never saw Mt. Diablo against the subtle backdrop of twilight glow.
