Pinnacles National Monument

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of visiting Pinnacles National Monument for the first time, with a good friend of mine. At the risk of sounding like a braggart, I find it pretty ironic that I had visited 33 countries and 34 U.S. states before visiting the closest U.S. National Monument to my hometown. What's there, then? Lots of photogenic geological features - the remnants of an extinct volcano - plus the endangered California condor. Glad that I finally got around to visiting a local gem - I shall be returning often to atone for not previously visiting.

Here are some photos from my hike.
