Erin and I popped out to take in some local scenery and topology by camping and hiking at Mt. Diablo State Park. We were dissapointed to find that there were no devils on the mountain, just some nice views of the surrounding area.
I operate in an area much better if I have something of a three-dimensional map in my head detailing where I am. Scaling a mountain that's around 2000' higher than anything within a hundred miles or so really helps with that. The views are pretty good, too.
