  • Hi Scott,
    Beautiful shot of an incredible area for soaring, our glider club was in Livermore next to the start of the Altamont Pass and outer-marker for the Livermore Airport. We flew a lot over Mt. Diablo in wave and sometimes great thermals. For me, that was a very long time ago, so happy to see your picture of our wonderful mountain.
    Thanks, Toodie Marshall
