Mt. Diablo Sunrise

On a dawn walk on a ridge in Oakland, California I turned to the east and saw a plume of steam coming from the ranger hut above Mt. Diablo. Then I noticed the valley fog breaking like surf against the hills, the sunlight like molten lava and the realization that except for the plume from the summit I could see no sign of humanity - this could have been a Northern California vista from before humans settled here.
