Two strenuous back to back hikes. I'm exhausted but grateful to live in this beautiful state! #pinnaclesnp #nationalpark #usnatlparks #juniperridge #balconiescave #caving #hiking #hikingtrailsofCA #california
Pinnacles National Park was great. Did both longer hikes and saw both sets of caves. One day in the sun and one day in the fog. Both made for memorable experiences. #vanagonlife #thewestylife #vanlife #getoutside #pinnaclesnp
Pinnacles NP | California Capping off 2017 with a bang! Thank you for the unforgettable memories and opportunities for growth! First time ringing in the new year in California, in nature, and completely off the grid. It was epic! Very grateful for nature and exploring new NPs. Happy 2018 ya'll!

Bucket List Central Coast #652 : Lace up for a new adventure . . . If hiking through volcanic rock formations, exploring caves, and capturing pics of boulders larger than a house is something that interests you, check out @pinnaclesnps. You’ll find this National Park off the 101 a little north of Paso Robles. . . . . #bucketlistcentralcoast #moveitmonday #moretocome . . . .

What a hidden treasure filled with cool rock formations resulting from an extinct volcano. It’s located near the San Andreas fault, which also had a hand in creating these beautiful and unique pinnacles. A great day of hiking!

The Condor Gulch at Pinnacles National Park. These are my last photos from my phone that I'll be uploading of Pinnacles on Instagram (have some on the DSLR that may be uploaded once I've gotten back to the UK). The rest I'll upload on Facebook. #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #condorgulch #condorgulchtrail #pinnacles #california #ca #usa #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #travelblog #travelblogging #travelgram #travel #travelling #instatravel #tourism #tourist #beautifulday #beautifulscenery #boulders #boulder #cave #hiking #hike #trail #hikingtrail

Final few photos of the Bear Gulch Trail at Pinnacles National Park in California. This is on the route back down. After this I headed up to the Condor Gulch Trail to get a different view of this region. #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #beargulch #beargulchcave #beargulchtrail #beargulchreservoir #pinnacles #california #ca #usa #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #travelblog #travelblogging #travelgram #travel #travelling #instatravel #tourism #tourist #beautifulday #beautifulscenery #boulders #boulder #cave #hiking #hike #trail #hikingtrail
Photos from the Bear Gulch Reservoir at the top exit of the Bear Gulch Cave in Pinnacles National Park. This is a nice hike that goes from one of the car parks up through a cave to a reservoir. You can see why they call this place Pinnacles from up here. Pinnacles is America's youngest national park, established in 2013. Prior to this it was just a monument but it's absolutely beautiful and deserves national park status. To see most of the beautiful parts of the park you have to hike. The Bear Gulch is one of the easier hikes (ignoring the cave) and allows you to see this at the top. #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #beargulch #beargulchcave #beargulchtrail #beargulchreservoir #pinnacles #california #ca #usa #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #travelblog #travelblogging #travelgram #travel #travelling #instatravel #tourism #tourist #beautifulday #beautifulscenery #boulders #boulder #cave #hiking #hike #trail #hikingtrail
Random portrait shots from the Bear Gulch Cave in Pinnacles National Park. Instagram is so bad with portrait photos - I can't really fit in the whole picture in most cases, but this gives you an idea of what the boulders are like at the entrance / exit of the cave. Once you leave the cave this way (first picture) you get to the Bear Gulch Reservoir at the top of the steps (next post). #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #beargulch #beargulchcave #beargulchtrail #beargulchreservoir #pinnacles #california #ca #usa #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #travelblog #travelblogging #travelgram #travel #travelling #instatravel #tourism #tourist #beautifulday #beautifulscenery #boulders #boulder #cave #hike #hiking #trail #hikingtrail
Have to enjoy this #dinklife while it lasts!! Took a last minute day trip to #pinnaclesnationalpark and will definitely be going back! #pinnaclesnp #nationalparks #california #adventureisoutthere
Landscape photos of outside and inside of Bear Gulch Cave. Most photos I took were portrait due to the size of the cave so will post those later on. These were from hiking through the cave up to the reservoir. #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #pinnacles #nps #nationalpark #hiking #hikingtrail #walking #beautifulday #beautifulscenery #california #usa #ca #travelling #travelgram #instatravel #travel #tourism #tourist #novemberhike #travelblog #travelblogging #boulder #boulders #beargulch #beargulchtrail #beargulchcave #cave

More photos of the hike from Peaks View to the Bear Gulch area in Pinnacles National Park, California. From here I hiked the whole Bear Gulch Loop - including through the cave. #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #pinnacles #nps #nationalpark #hiking #hikingtrail #walking #beautifulday #beautifulscenery #california #usa #ca #travelling #travelgram #instatravel #travel #tourism #tourist #novemberhike #travelblog #travelblogging
A few photos from the Peaks View to Bear Gulch Trail at Pinnacles National Park (1.7 mile hike). This was literally on the walk from one car parking location to another. I was not allowed to drive any further than Peaks View as the park was full further in, so hiked from there to Bear Gulch, where the hiking trails I wanted to walk started. This wasn't a big issue as it was such a beautiful day and I got lucky with the weather. It didn't cloud over or rain once. Pinnacles is only 2h drive from San Francisco. Definitely worth the visit if you're a hiker and / or just love the US National Park Service. #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnaclesnp #pinnacles #nps #nationalpark #hiking #hikingtrail #walking #beautifulday #beautifulscenery #california #usa #ca #travelling #travelgram #instatravel #travel #tourism #tourist #novemberhike #travelblog #travelblogging
Entrance to Pinnacles National Park. I did about 5 hours of hiking during this beautiful day at the park and yet still had so much more left to see. Pinnacles is America's youngest national park, established under President Obama in 2013. It is only 2 hours from San Francisco and if you have access to a car or can rent one, it's a must visit. It is absolutely beautiful and definitely worth visiting if you are a hiker, as all the views are on the hiking trails. I have taken so many photos of Pinnacles National Park, including those on the DSLR, that it's going to take a while to sort them. I'll try upload a few over the next few days but most of them won't be sorted until after I return to the UK. #pinnaclesnationalpark #pinnacles #pinnaclesnp #pinnaclesnps #nps #nationalpark #nationalparkservice #pinnacles #usa #california #travelling #roadtrip #hiking #hikingtrail #walking #travel #travelblog #instatravel #travelgram #tourist #tourism #travelblogging
Exploring both Chalone Pks./17oz of H2O not enough, ugh :) Saw lots of beautiful views, some interesting potential routes left for future scouting. #5 .9kverts #pinnaclesnp #hainwilderness #altrarunning #altralonepeaks #mdrive #insidetrailracing #orangemud @altrarunning @insidetrailracing @mdrive @orangemud
Highlights from our 12 mile hike in Pinnacles National Park. Many places throughout the park reminded me of the PCT, mainly the Southern California desert and parts of Northern California. Then I got all nostalgic and the urge to thru hike again took over my thoughts.

Up and at it bright and early, hiked over to the caves and strolled on through. #PinnaclesNP #VolcanosAndCaves βœ”οΈ #DiscoverAllTheWildThingsTour
Eli maps our hike out in the Pinnacles. Feeling ready to go back to the mountains this weekend... #eliahreifinger #pinnacles #pinnaclesnp #getbuck

Happy sun-day, friends! β˜€οΈ What's your favorite kind of rock to climb? Yosemite granite? Arches sandstone? Or maybe the volcanic hodge-podge of Pinnacles? This texture was new for us when we hit Camel Wall this summer, and we're still trying to make up our minds about it... P.S. Thanks for your responses to our last post about NP entrance fees. We enjoyed reading all of them and getting inside your brains. No matter your stance, I think we can all agree that (1) the parks are worth protecting and (2) the annual pass is a great value! ✌🏼🌎
Going through the High Peaks on a 100 degree day is no joke! I think Nebraska winter is going to be a big adjustment for me... β›°πŸ”πŸ”₯ . . . #mountainskirtz #crvlife #pinnacles #pinnaclesnp #highpeaks #hike #findmypark #peaks #summit #spires #adventure #explore #guidelife #nalifornia #desertlife #hiking #hikecalifornia
