We hiked in Pinnacles when it was still a National Monument, but soon before it became a National Park. The hiking became a little bit hairy at the top where anyone with the slightest fear of heights would have to work hard to conquer their fears! When we arrived, a woodpecker was tearing up the place with holes in many of the trees. There were some great photo opportunities with many open views of rocks, mountains and hills in the background. Rocks have fallen over generations to form interesting formations. In some pictures, you will see mega-ton boulders over our heads, wedged into canyon walls! This was by far one of the biggest surprise parks, with much to offer and not a lot of visitors.
