California’s Hidden Gem: Pinnacles National Park Aergo Wanderlust Approved!

Pinnacles National Monument, California. This lovely park in the middle of the state is worth the long drive with some of the most interesting hiking I've seen. Condors, bats, cave trails, ledge trails, and the lonely pinnacle trail with catwalks and handrails and crude ladders carved into the volcanic rock to keep you from pitching off the side.

Pinnacles National Monument, CA -  USA's 59th National Park as of 1/10/13. Huge boulders create an underground cave hike-it filled me with wonder as a young girl of 9.

Where to stop around Pinnacles National Park

A 2hr drive, the massive spires and sheer canyons are actually the remains of an ancient volcano that was split in two by the San Andreas Fault. The spectacular walls attract bats, falcons and one of the rarest birds in the world: the California condor. Hike through caves, visit bat colonies in their caves, see the California condor and go on a night hike with a ranger!
