It’s almost time for the Summer Solstice — a perfect time for an evening hike on Mount Diablo.

Our soiree begins at Coulter Pond, where we’ll look in on toads and frogs. Then, as the sun sets, we’ll saunter up Mitchell Canyon to check out the park’s evening shift, including poor-wills, bats, owls, and scorpions.
