DIAMOND MINES CEMETERY LOOP TRAIL
June 4, 2015
Since much of the park is open spaces, it's best hiked when cool. And with only a week of good weather left, we put the mines on our short list. After doing our gear up we started up the hill towards the cemetery in cool temperatures under clear skies and a scent of spring grasses and tree pollen in the air. We opted for the Nortonville - Black Diamond - Manhattan Canyon circle route as this was short, scenic, and had the most cover, not to mention the good views. Plus keeping the hike short meant avoiding the mid afternoon heat... amazing the rationale people come up with when they're just basically old and tired.
