Despite living in the Bay Area for 80 percent of my life, until today, I had never visited Mt. Diablo State Park. Jeff, Jane and I drove up to the Mt. Diablo Summit this afternoon and then stopped at the Uplands picnic area on the way down mountain. From the parking lot, we took a badly paved road up a hill and followed it to where the path ended in a grove of oak trees.
