Today we went to the Black Diamond Mines in Antioch, CA. We walked around for a bit but were unable to explore the mines because we had Hazel with us. The hills are beautiful right now. With such an amazing view we weren’t too upset about not being able to go underground. We’re told that the grass on the hills will soon turn brown which is a big bummer for us. We often will both see a gorgeous view while we’re out driving, hiking, or riding our bikes and we’ll turn to each other and say “Oh my gosh, this is beautiful!” But I suppose it will go away and just be something to look forward to in the spring.
