So we need a new screen name now, of course. PigFarmScott has a certain ring to it, wouldn't you say?

God love you Diablo Scott. It is your mountain, we just ride on it.

After 20 trips to the top in 2011 I thought, maybe enough was enough. I took a break.
I had not been inside the park boundary even once in 2012.
Then just last Thursday I went to the Junction.
Wow, did I miss your mountain! So today I climbed to the summit 3 times.
Enough is never enough.

Plus you get to see things like these frosty trees near the top on my first ascent.

Haha, that's great! Have seen all the above (except the famed DiabloScott) on the mountain.

Have viewed as cyclist and hang-glider wannabe.

It's a true gem. I hope people ignore it so we have fewer cars to dodge.

Ha! Looks I was suffering too much to look. See you in July. If not sooner, esp. if I'm not looking. Heh, heh.

Never enough of Diablo--although lately I have enjoyed going up Mitchell Canyon at least once a week--no cars--although the last 2 miles are on the road!

Beautiful place to say the least.

Also to be enjoyed under the stars with telescopes with MDAS (Mount Diablo Astronomical Society) the next public night is Saturday April 14!

Not sure I would have associated Diablo with Edith Piaf!

when a turkey (with their most ridiculous expressions, IMHO, of any bird) looks at you like you are nuts, well, you've got to take a step back and reflect on that, i would think.

I have PowerDirector. Didn't really need that much ability but I needed something that would read the DVDs that I copied all my VHS family videos to. It's handy though because I can create instant movies of photos and video clips and burn them to disks for relatives.
