It’s summer time and the “living is easy”— the perfect time for an evening hike on Mount Diablo.

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