Great Article. You should have more of these local stories in your columns. We get enough political and crime related stories bombarding us from all directions; this story - by contrast- has the power to make the reader pause and be thankfull for the beautiful natural surroundings in which we live.

I agree with Mike: please keep these stories coming.

We camped up Mount Diablo many times while the kids were growing up, to take in comets, meteor showers, spring flowers or just because it was there, but is is easy to get out of the habit and stories like these are a great reminder of the resources, (natural and otherwise) that we have right on our door step.

Thank you to Glenn and the Danville Weekly :-)
