Pinnacles National Park has become one of my favorite places to hike and explore! 1) Light shining through a cave 2) Little downy woodpecker that would come home at sunset and watch over our campsite from his hole 😍 3) Bear Gulch Reservoir selfie 4) Spray tan by dirt 5) A critically endangered California condor (quite spectacular to see!) 6) Me, dying on a hike in 100 degree weather. #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #californiacondor #sanbenito #california #explore #camping #caving #birdwatching #hiking #weekendadventure
Hung out at #PinnaclesNP for a couple of days,, nice trail run Sunday when we got in,, and a long hike yesterday 🤓 Crazy empty leading up to a holiday. Im guessing the malls are full 😂
Pinnacles Friday was an experience. Definitely have to come back once the caves are fully open 👍🏼 #pinnaclesnp #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark
Pinnacles is off the list 🌞 #pinnaclesnp #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark #travel
Pinnacles National Park in California is a very cool spot for hiking and climbing thanks to the volcanic activity leaving being these amazing rock formations. Our little explorers found it too hot to go for a long hike so we didn’t get to see the caves but they did take the time to do the Junior Rangers program. Every park offers it for free. Kids need to complete activities in a book then take this pledge: “As a Junior Ranger, I promise to explore the wonders of national parks and nature all around me, to learn the importance of every living thing, to live every day as Earth’s best friend, and to help others do the same.” Think we should all take this pledge? ❤️🌎 . . . #gomighway #letthejourneyunfold #rvlife #roadtrip #familyroadtrip #californiaroadtrip #visitcalifornia #pinnaclesnp #usnationalparks #juniorranger #juniorrangerpledge #makethepledge #explorethewonders #lovetheplanet #coolrocks #rockformations #geologyiscool

It’s the little things in life..... Lichen is a little plant with an awesome job to tell us if a place is healthy or unhealthy! It takes on many shapes and colors and can be found many places!

Today I still got outdoors, I forgot how enjoyable hiking is. It was a perfect day to be out with my homies @sophpo3 and @justinejbrennan ! 20 years and we're still just as immature as always. #phallicrock #thatlookslikeadick #dickseverywhere #takeahike #getoutside #takeitslow #summerdays #oldfriends #pinnaclesnp

I had never even heard of Pinnacles National Park (@pinnaclesnps ) before I visited earlier this week. I was wonderfully surprised as a result by what I found! Unlike the droves of people at all other national parks, it was dead quiet here and very peaceful. The trail too was unreal. Sadly we didn’t have enough time and were definitely unprepared for the hunting through caves we could have done, but that just gives me a reason to go back. Some wonderful adventure to be had here. We also spotted a rattlesnake on route! (Much to my dismay — I was very careful where I stepped from then on). Highly recommend visiting 😀🐍.

Climbing the switchbacks up, you emerge from atop the trees and find yourself surrounded by the so called"Pinnacles". Continue up and you'll find some thrilling, tight squeezes among the Pinnacles themselves. #pinnacles #pinnaclesmoments #pinnaclesnp #pinnaclesnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparkservice #findyourpark #wilderness #sunset #landscape #landscapephotography #hike #hiking #hikingadventures #optoutside #getoutside #california #cali #instacali #caligrammers #solotravel #soloadventure #solohike #yourlifeoutdoors #rei1440project #travel #moodygrams #planetearth
I may have finally hiked all the trails at Pinnacles, but I hope I never tire of this little park 👣
Nicely placed rock #pinnaclesnp
Quick hike to bear gulch reservoir at Pinnacles National Park. Only 2 hours away from San Francisco is the perfect getaway for hikers and rock climbers 🧗‍♂️ . . . . #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #california #hiker #hiking #trail #adventure #caminata #mountains #montaña #optoutside #trekking #cave #backpacking #camping #roadtrip #rei #photography #outdoors #sonyalpha #a7rii #nature #naturaleza #nationalpark #statepark #wildlife #wildernessculture #igdaily #outdoors #mountainlife
Finally summited North Chalone Peak for amazing views to the west of the Salinas Valley and to the north of the heart of Pinnacles National Park! 👣
If you’re only running 3xs this week make ‘em count...Now time for 3 day job #6pluskvertday #pinnaclesnp #embracethespace #altraescalante @pinnaclesnp @orangemud @altrarunning @insidetrail @mdrive
Happy 3yr anniversary, love! Even though we haven’t done anything outdoorsy yet this year, may we find adventure and serenity from everything that life throws at us. Thank you for being my strength when I climb the highest mountains, and for reminding me that the best views are yet to come. If I’m the amazing person that I am today, it’s because you helped me get here. I love you! ❤️ //end corny caption lol// #napa #pinnaclesnp #bigsur #peru #iceland #zionnp #grandcanyonnp #capitolreefnp

Another great trip to Pinnacles National Park! Group photo outside Balconies Caves, leaving Bear Gulch Cave, golden hour at Bear Gulch Reservoir, views of the rock formations up in the high peaks (hehe), and a sample of the wildflowers. It’s a small but beautiful park!
Once in a vision I came on some wood And stood at a fork in the road My choices were clear Yet I froze with the fear of not knowing which way to go #pinnaclesnp #nationalparks #danfogelberg #nature . #healing #camping #rvlife
Pinnacles, super cool place but take a spill and you’re probably hiking out and then going to Urgent Care :)) #pinnaclesnp #altraruning #orangemud #4kvertsday #mdrive #ouchie #insidetrailracing @insidetrail @orangemud @altrarunning @mdrive
Went to Pinnacles National Park yesterday and it was so fun! Really loved the Bear Gulch caves we went into, probably my favorite part of the trip and it was such a beautiful day too! . . #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #eastertrip #nature #exploringnewthings #nofilter
@followthesunart painted on my defunct helmet! Thank goodness I was wearing this when a rock fell on my head a few months ago at @pinnaclesnps ! I love my helmet, Ana! Thank you. ♥️

Had to pivot on our Yosemite plans because of storms. Worked out though, because we found Pinnacles National Park. Got to do a little spelunking in a pitch black talus cave, which was just down right awesome! Walked out the back end to scale a couple cliffs. Pretty awesome hike at a pretty awesome park! > > #hike #hiking #hiker #nationalparkgeek #nationalpark #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #outdoors #outside #adventure #wander #wanderlust #explore #exploremore #publicland #exploreyourparks #stayandwander #california #explorecalifornia #mountains #views #findyourpark #findyouradventure #naturelovers
#Repost @pinnaclesnps Photo by: @ian_clazie ・・・ Pinnacles was originally designated as a National Monument in 1908. It was later designated a National Park by Congress in late 2012, and signed into law by President Barack Obama on January 10, 2013. The park is located in a mountainous area east of the Salinas Valley in Central California, about 5 miles (8.0 km) east of Soledad and 80 miles (130 km) southeast of San Jose. The park's namesakes are the eroded leftovers of the western half of an extinct volcano that has moved 200 miles (320 km) from its original location on the San Andreas Fault, embedded in a portion of the California Pacific Coast Ranges. Pinnacles is managed by the National Park Service and the majority of the park is protected as wilderness (Source: Wikipedia) #NationalParksAtoZ #NationalParks #PinnaclesNationalPark #PinnaclesNP #AmericasBestIdea #NPS @pinnaclesnps
I was so excited to catch California condor no. 606 right as he was taking off from the High Peaks of Pinnacles NP during my last trip there. It's hard to describe how impressive these birds are until you see them in person.
Went to the Pinnacles. Ran to Scout Pk, then found a spring and followed it down as it descended over many cool rock formations making small stream falls and multiple pools. After that fun, it was off to N.Chalone Pk and a hike through deer trails and a bit of bush tunneling for a nice mini adventure and something new on the mountain. Great day packed into 11ish miles, my watch got paused somewhere on the mountain when I was pushing through some brush. So maybe 11-12 miles and many cool sights. #4 .5kverts #pinnaclesnp #altrakings #embracethespace #orangemudendurance #mdrive #insidetrail @altrarunning @orangemud @insidetrail @mdrive

Happy face for diversity in the outdoors. I said “Happy New Year” to all the Asian families I saw on the trail yesterday. #DoItForTheCulture 📷PC, hiking partner, and AAPI bf: @ki.chainz

You know it's been a good day hiking when you're the last one out of the parking lot 👣
One of our best camping experiences. Felt intoxicatingly alive under the stars. Can't wait for our camping trip to Yosemite and Lassen coming up soon. #milkyway #pinnales #camping #astrophotography #nationalparkgeek #nps #nationalpark #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #naturelover #stars #californiaphotographer #travelphotography #campingphotography #usparksandmonuments #sonya6000 #sonyalpha #wanderlust
