the milky way was out (summer!), but the lens i brought wasn't quite fast enough--you can make out the hourglass nebula (click on the photo and you'll see notable objects tagged in flickr).

after descending diablo, I commuted through west contra costa, redwood park, and finally down 38th ave to my desk in fruitvale.

pull out your topo and you'll find lots of great spots above about 2500 ft, which is usually high enough to get above the fog from my experience. sorry i can't say more than that, i don't publish detailed locations for lots of reasons.
