Spring on Mount Diablo, a beautiful island in a sea of green

Another note from my friend Brian:

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s Spring!

There is an unusually spectacular display of California poppies along Northgate Road to brighten up your trip up Mount Diablo, with other wildflowers soon to follow. (Brian in Walnut Creek, CA)

Brian’s point is well taken. Get thee up beautiful Mount Diablo this weekend so you can stand on top and look around and be overwhelmed by the roiling sea of green foothills lapping at your feet in all directions.

Take your time on the way down so you can enjoy the wildflowers. Spring only happens once a year, you know, so you don’t want to miss anything! /Gary

    Spring in Alabama, too, almost. I count spring as sprung when the kudzu turns green. Glad to see you are still around, Gary. I read your column when I delivered West County Times back in the ’80s–1983-1990, to be exact.
