Pinnacles National Park

It was hot September 2014. I read somewhere about the newest National Park and decided that I want to check it immediately.
Loop hike from the very entrance and total ~20 miles of hiking (most of it – uphill and without shade). Condors were flying all around us. And sun, sun was even in the tunnel! That was unforgettable experience and lesson I’ve learned the hard way.

I flew from San Diego on Friday, and I already knew that on Sunday I’ll want to hike in Pinnacles. I wanted to see the greenest side of the park so much!
We started from the East Entrance (again) and didn’t take the shuttle.
The weather was lovely, and we walked all the way to the Bear Gulch Day Use Area via Bench Trail.

And then took Condor Gulch Trail. It was the first time we hiked that way, and we were impressed!
