I'm going camping with my friends to Pinnacles National Monument this weekend. Last time we went there (2 years ago...same time of the year), we hiked to some caves on Saturday and hiked the peaks/gorges on Sunday and spent the nights eating/drinking, enjoying the campfire, chasing raccoons and spotting wild boars. There should be some stories and pictures to share next week.
[Update] Great trip! We saw 6 California Condors perched on top of the Pinnacles during our Saturday hike, with 3 of them soaring above us at one time. The weather could not have been better for November...clear blue skies, highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. As usual, the gang enjoyed themselves...eating/drinking/being merry.
Here are some pics of the trip...thanks Donna & Bryce!
