Turning to Gold - Mt. Diablo

As spring ends and California enters summer the grass quickly turns golden leaving a few spots of green. I took this on a short drive out across the fields on the North Eastern side of Mount Diablo. It is the tallest mountain in the San Francisco Bay Area and I can say for personal experience it is one of the first things you see when coming across the central valley. It will loom on the horizon for hours as you travel from Yosemite back to the Bay Area getting larger ever so slowly as you approach. It’s always been a landmark for us in our travels across the state.
