Man, I went to Joshua Tree two weekends in a row, and didn’t take photos either time!
So, return of the hikes file! “we loves hikes.txt”

Joshua Tree, and more Joshua Tree

Pinnacles National Monument, February 2006

May 8th, 2006 by

In my ongoing quest to hit up all NPS properties (whee), I went to Pinnacles NM with a whole mess of people from February 24-26 (we had originally been intending to go to Death Valley, but that’s a whole different story). This is a grouping of volcanic rocks which have meandered their way northward over the last thousand or so years, ending up about 1-1.5 hours south of San Jose, in the Gabilan Mountain Range.
(eta 2/28/2014: Pinnacles is now a National Park!)

such a stereotypical yet awesome image!

Switzer Falls. Fun in the front ranges of the San Gabriels.

In a reverse twist this year, this February hike ended up being one of the most idyllic of the last several months.

Some of us decided to relax more than others, but who can blame them?
