Oct. 31-Nov. 2: Cemetery hike, Day of the Dead and more 

click to enlarge Bat-witch crazy: Watch for tarantulas on a half-mile hike to an old pioneer graveyard at Antioch's Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. The Rose Hill Cemetery and the legend of the "white witch" are chilling. Headstones date back to the 1800s. There's a 90-minute, docent-led tour through the tunnels on weekends (through November). Don't miss the "stopes," expansive underground rooms that look like Batman's batcave ... and there are bats here, just deeper in the cave.
