Mt. Diablo State Park
The mountain exerts a force from a distance. Its silhouette shatters our immaculate horizon; its peaks seize our imagination like a maelstrom drags a ship into its vortex. The mountain obliterates the setting sun, the rising moon, the constellations as they swoop carelessly low over the world. The mountain, known as Diablo, is a sight to behold. You should see it up close.
