From the trail behind the Observation Tower at the summit of Mount Diablo
The Bay Area

This panorama from the top of Mount Diablo, located inside of Mount Diablo State Park, is one of the ecological treasures of the San Francisco Bay area. Although this day was one of the hazy summer days, it is said that some of the best views in the world are from here the day after a winter storm. And one can see many, many miles in all directions. The observation deck sits on top of the Summit Museum at 3,849 feet elevation and was built in the late 1930's of fossiliferous sandstone blocks quarried in the park. Atop the rotunda is a beacon with historical importance that is now only lit once a year on December 7 in memory of Pearl Harbor.
