December 2015

A cold front had passed through on Christmas Eve, and there was the possibility of snow on the summit. I got up early and headed to Mount Diablo State Park, but the summit road was closed at the Junction Ranger Station. So, I laced up my hiking boots and headed up the Summit Trail for the 1500' climb to the summit. I captured this image just as the clouds lifted on the blustery northwest corner of the Mary Bowerman Trail where the landscape was covered in frost and ice.
