March 15th WaterFall hike March 15th WaterFall hike Andrew reports on the March 15th Mount Diablo WaterFall hike:

    We had 17 hikers on a pretty decent day. We all finished and even saw some sun. Falls and creeks are still flowing but the water level has diminished.
And regarding the more recent March 19th Lime Ridge hike:
    We had 5 hikers today. One girl and four boys. What more could a girl ask for. The conversation was very entertaining. At times, hilarious. A glorious day. The vegetation growth on the north side of the hill is astounding. Grass is a foot high, mixed with lot's of miners lettuce. It was a fun day.
