Picture perfect weekend!

We had an amazing weekend with absolutely beautiful weather!  Leaving the campground behind was hard but at least it's close to us and we know we'll be back.

The Pinnacles National Monument is a fantastic camping adventure if you're in the Bay Area. Be prepared though for lots of folks in the spring and summer time as the hiking here is fantastic and the rock climbing is loved by lots of locals. There's a cute store, a nightly ranger program, full moon guided hikes, shuttles that take you to the trail head at the caves and a pool which opens Memorial Day weekend. The park is also a great place for star gazing and can often be full of college astronomy classes from all over the state along with serious bird watchers. The park is an area which is filled with California Condors and bald eagles. We're are so looking forward to our next trip to explore more of the hiking trails and see what adventure we can find!


I can't get the darn smilebox to open :0(
Can't wait until soccer is over and we can spend our weekends at the lake that we just leased a lot out on
