Ceridwen may not remember much of it, since she was still pretty out of it, but after living it up at the Hotel Palomar, we spent a night atop Mount Diablo, which is said to be one of the best views in the world - up there with Kilimanjaro. We'll have to get started on planning our mountain climbing trip to Tanzania. The view was indeed beautiful, with our campground above the cloudline, which is pretty cool to see.

On the down side, it was a little cold up on Mount Diablo, and it was way further away from downtown than we thought. The intent was to camp for a couple of days and drive to the closest BART stop to head in to town during the day, but the trip up the mountain made it clear that this plan fell significantly short of clever.
