History in the Sunset – Mount Diablo from the Central Valley of California

 

Sometimes just taking a few moments to actually “see” that which is around us have a “pleasure moment” of their own.  Countless times this “mount” is seen by travelers moving north and south on two major highways of Central California  - Interstate Route 5 and Highway 99.  Mount Diablo may be seen from a major portion of Northern California … and the view is different from the vantage point of the looker.

 

Mount Diable - California

 

This view is from the Central Valley of California – on the side of the frontage road next to Highway 99 in North Stockton.  Unlike many of the other “mounts” in California (Mt. Whitney, Mt. Shasta) this mount has a real estate history unique to the California scene.

 

Today, the 3864 feet high Mt. Diablo is the site of a 20,000 acre state park.  The preserved lands around the park total over 90,000 acres and include watersheds, regional parks and over 38 preserves.  Viewed from the Central Valley, the more common “double-pyramid” outline is hidden … but it is more clearly seen from the “Bay Area.”  So today, the influence of Mt. Diablo is a pretty significant piece of real estate.

 

The Real Estate History of Mount Diablo started 160 years ago in 1851 when Leander Ransom identified it as the initial point where the Mount Diablo Base and Meridian lines intersect.  Cadestral surveys based on metes-and-bounds of real properties find one of their reference points at Mount Diablo.

 

If you are considering moving to the Central Valley of California … you could see this iconic site every day (weather permitting) across the playground of the Delta.  In fact, there are numerous homes that the view can be captured from your living room or decks.  Let the members of The Nines Team help you to find that picture perfect spot … and see the “center” of the local real estate Universe …. Mount Diablo …. California!

Nice picture Jack.  I was just out that way the other day, traveling west on highway 12 you get a great view of Mt. Diablo.

You do indeed Jim and from that road the view and mass of Mount Diablo is really impressive.

Way back in 1995 I came real close to moving to Danville, right at the foot of Mt. Diablo. Things didn’t work out with my other half’s company, so we’re resigned to living here in San Diego. J♪♫♫♪

Jim - Gosh ... consigned to living in Paradise ... or at least as close as you could get in the continental US ... but then I guess I'm prejudiced ... I was born and raised in San Diego!

Jack,

Excellent blog post. What a dramatic view of the mountain. Dark down and still light up. Got a feeling that it was taken with I-phone, right, wrong?

jack - how could I not notice the difference (LOL)

Interesting, I am sure that watching the mountain in the evening is fascinating as light and colors are changing very quickly.

Jon - The array of colors in the sunset seem to deepen to dark ... while I'm sure you have great opportunities to see spectacular sunrises that fade into the light.  Either way, it's a moment of personal intensity ... that even when the time is shared, the experience is individually unique.
