Just in time for summer

As the weather is finally turning the corner, it’s that time of year when we all start thinking about ending our hibernation and getting in a bit better shape. Alavie Fitness (formerly Bay Area Boot Camp) is starting classes up in Heather Farms next week. That’s right! First class is St. Patty’s Day. I may take this class myself. Friends of mine have taken it and say “it’s tough but worth it”. That’s my kind of ringing endorsement. Maybe I’ll see you there.


Welcome to valeriecrowell.com. As you might imagine, I’m Valerie Crowell. I’ll be your tour guide for this little jaunt around Mt. Diablo.

I’m in the real estate industry. I’ve been working in Northern California most of my life. The basis for every metes and bounds description up here is Mt. Diablo base and meridian. It didn’t seem like that big of a deal until I moved out into her shadow. She is an majestic mountain. She looms large over this whole area. A friend says “if you get lost, just drive towards Mt. Diablo and you’ll find your way”. I did and I have. You can too.
