2004 Pinnacles National Monument Trip
(Thursday, 18 March - Sunday, 21 March, 2004)
This was my first trip as an adult to Pinnacles National Monument, and Sarah
and I were very much looking forward to spending a long weekend in the area.
Pinnacles is a hiker's park (no other activities are permitted), and with just
30 miles of (maintained) trail, we figured we could cover pretty much all of
it in 4 days.
We were both surprised by the beauty and isolation of the Monument, so close
to the Bay Area (expect weekend crowds!), and had a fabulous time with our
luxurious car camping!
