Pinnacles National Monument
I am lucky to live in a place with so much inspiration. On Saturday, I visited Pinnacles National Monument. Here is my first view:
We decided to take the most popular route, which goes up to a reservoir. We passed under this seasonal waterfall.
The most challenging part was passing through this cave. We thought we'd hit a dead end but my trusty guidebook explained that you had to crawl through a half-fallen boulder.
After climbing up a narrow stone staircase, we reached the reservoir.
We walked around that for a little ways and sat on the rocks for a while before making our way back.
One of the fun things is that this route is a loop so you see different things on the way back, like this window rock formation:
Look for paintings of my expedition in the near future :-).
