⛰ Pinnacles National Park was an unexpected treat for us! 🤔 Nathan and I knew very little about this park before we discovered it and decided to venture 8 miles out into it. 💧There were caves, lakes, mountainous views, and of course several pinnacles. 🌞 It was one of the more rewarding hikes we had done in quite some time. 📸 Sometimes shots are setup on a tripod while others involve our camera nestled on some natural rock. haha 😎 Here's a candid shot of us setting up a shot.
Whoa, close call with a green rattle snake! Rounded a corner airborne and came down right by a sunning snake, he coiled up quickly and rattled and hissed as I double tapped my feet and kept outta there! My heart was racing and I’m super thankful to Jesus 🙏#3kvert #pinnaclesnp #embracethespace #givethanksandpraisesforlife @pinnaclesnps @pinnaclesnationalpark @altrarunning @xoskin @orangemud @insidetrail @mdrive
I’d never have thought that there’s so much space in California where there’s no cellphone service whatsoever! After a little more than 1.5 weeks on the road with our RV, today is the first time again that we have internet access at the campground we’re staying. So here come some pictures from 1.5 weeks ago, when we visited Pinnacles National Park. ————————— @pinnaclesnps @nationalparkservice #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #hikingadventures #oldpinnaclestrail #sunnyhikes #usnationalparks #roadtripusa #traveltheusa #visittheusa @visittheusa #lebenimausland #expatfamily #unterwegsmitkind

Looking for real dark skies and don’t have time for Eastern Sierras or Death Valley? Look no further. Loving our youngest national park. Incredible cave hikes, dark skies, and generally doesn’t get crowded. Highly recommended.

I’m thankful that my best friend and partner in this life loves National Parks as much as I do. Thanks for teaching me it’s okay to be silly sometimes @gcorn94 #nationalparks #pinnacles #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #nps
Swig of beer for the battle scared and tested Escalantes, Badwater put a hurt on them but they good for another 500miles. First 20 miler since Badwater, thought it appropriate to run in the shoes that got me through much of the race, the beautifully scared Altra Escalante 1.5s...The heat and me kicking something(?) out on the course worked a corner off my shoe😂 but these babies still ride as good as new! Ran up to the Pinnacles NP and back...So many grapes!!! Flag at half staff for J.M. And snapped a pic of some poor fella that lost his pincers😳 #2 .5kverts #altraescalantes #beautifulbattlescars #orangemud #xoskin #driven #mdrive #pinnaclesnp #soledad #insidetrail @altrarunning @orangemud @xoskin @insidetrail @mdrive
Heading into the caves! We found some Townsend’s Big-eared Bats and a Striped Racer down in there! Lots of cool birds filling the oaks and chaparral above ground! #CAbirding #PinnaclesNationalPark #PinnaclesNP #nationalpark #cave #caves #birding #teamcanon #zeissbirding #zeissnature #zeiss @zeissbirding @zeissnature @wildsidetours
Outdoor climbing routes don’t need to be hard to be a lot of fun. Had a great day with the broskis climbing in Pinnacles today. The routes were 5.8 and below, but we still had a blast (that could be because my brothers are awesome and make for great company).

The reservoir at Pinnacles National Park, where we were lucky enough to see some condors circling overhead!! #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnacles #pinnaclesnp #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkobsessed #national_park_photography @nationalparkgram @nationalparkgeek @pinnaclesnps
⛰ We climbed one of the peaks within Pinnacles National Park a while back. This was one of the most rewarding hikes we've done in quite some time! 😀We had to take our packs off and scramble up rock to get to the top of this peak. 👣 It's a lot easier to hike and climb with the proper footwear. Go figure right? 😅 Learn all about the different types of hiking shoes and how they can help you adventure further in Nathan's most recent blog post. 👟 . What type of shoes or boots are you using while out on the trail? Nathan's wearing Merrell MOAB 2 Ventilators in this pic. 🌲 . www.WeWhoRoam.com
On meteor-shower peak day I checked the wildfire map for California, and unfortunately fire was everywhere (or smoke). Big Sur and most of hwy1 places were foggy so decided to have a look at our youngest NP, Pinnacles NP. Got off work late and arrived just after sunset and started hiking to the Bear Gulch Reservoir. What an adventurous dark hike it was; completely dark caves full of bats and bugs. It was fun and I found my way out and to the spot. Incredible sky it was. Thanks to @lyrical.outdoors for helping me find the way out in the dark 🙏🙏 @best_timelapse @bestoftimelapse_ . . . . #timelapsevideo #milkywaychasers #astrophoto #nighttimelapse #timelapseart #startimelapse #bestoftimelapse_ #instatimelapse #best_timelapse #timelapse #timelapsephotography #sonyalpha #nightphotography #southwestusa #californianature #californialife #lighttrail #longexpo #westcoastroadtrip #perseidmeteorshower #meteorshower #meteorshowers #shootingstar #stunnersoninsta #pinnaclesnationalpark #beargulch #beargulchreservoir #pinnaclesnp #outdoorliving #nightscapes

Near Gulch Reservoir at Pinnacles NP. Such a fun little hike!! One of my favorite destinations! #PinnaclesNP #beargulchreservoir #daytrippin #dayhike #lake
Matt and I went out for a drive to the pinnacles this afternoon, hiked up to Bear Gulch Reservoir then got down off of the mountain in time to catch this view. #pinnaclesnp #sunset #iphonefun #landscapephotography
With the devastating closure of @yosemitenps , don't forget about another stunning park in Central California: @pinnaclesnps ! . While a newer, lesser-known park, the Pinnacles is located just east of Salinas Valley, about a two hour drive from San Francisco. The park has a hauntedly beautiful, prehistoric landscape offering massive rock formations, bear caves and oak woodlands. To learn more, check out the link in my bio!
The tunnels, caves and rock formations at Pinnacles National Park are so much fun! . . . . #climbing #climb #climboutside #pinnacles #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #californialife #california #explorecalifornia #californialiving
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
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!
