As with our image yesterday - this image was taken on Sunday. The capture was at about three o'clock in the afternoon. And again - it is rare for any snow to stick around all day on any of our local peaks.
With a summit at 3849 feet (1173 m) - Mount Diablo is considerably larger than Mount Tamalpias. The summit stands about 30 miles east of downtown San Francisco.
The bridge in the foreground is a new construction across the Carquinez Strait at Benicia. If I were to pan slightly to the right you would see the old span which used to carry all of the traffic in both directions. A terrible bottleneck. The new bridge now bares the northbound traffic while the old one takes care of everyone and everything rolling south. A much happier arrangement.
I have been posting numerous images of this strait recently. Those images were all more towards the west end. This bridge spans the eastern most point of the strait as it opens into Suisun Bay. We will look there tomorrow.
