Scramble through this national park full of spires, caves, condors, and bats
Rising up high along what is known as the Ring of Fire and out of the Gabilan Mountains, you will find the remains of an ancient volcano. As a result of millions of years of highly active volcanic activity and erosion; spires and monoliths protruded from the earth. This is Pinnacles National Park. Camping, condors, and caves are the primary attraction to this national park. It was designated as a full national park in 2013. It is also home to the extremely endangered California condor and other wildlife including the bobcat. You will find Balconies Cave and Bear Gulch Cave located in separate areas of the park. These caves were formed as a result of earthquake and volcanic activity causing large boulders to fall. The boulders fell into narrow gorges and became stuck between the rock walls. There are two bat colonies that house themselves these two caves. Explore more, worry less. I know your time is valuable, so I sincerely thank you for coming along this journey!
