Mitchell Canyon: Mount Diablo SP

Poppies and Lupine at Mitchell Canyon
Mitchell Canyon is on the North side of Mount Diablo State Park. It’s known for spring flowers so I thought I’d give it a try. I barely scratched the surface of what’s available in the Park but there were some nice flowers along the trail. BTW, Mount Diablo is not on the closure list. The Park has all the hiking trails you could ask for and, if you want hills, it’s the right place. I’m used to being alone in the State Parks on week days but on Wednesday, the Park was fairly busy. As in, I saw several other hikers. Recent work has been updated with some favorites from the day.

I stopped in “Old Clayton” for coffee on the way home. Cup O’Jo was the only place in town – there’s not much town there. The coffee was only a two cup rating but you don’t have to worry about seating. I was the only person there – even the barrista disappeared after serving me. 🙂
