Pinnacles National Monument
Hiking - Old Pinnacles/High Peaks Trails, North Chalone Peak

I hooked up with Jaime's group again for a couple of days of hiking at Pinnacles National Monument.

Driving, camp set-up, horse shoes and eating on Friday. Saturday a group of us hiked (from the campground) the Old Pinnacles Trail/Balconies Cave Trail/Balconies Trail to the Chaparral Ranger Station at the West entrance. We then went up Juniper Canyon to the High Peaks and back down to the shuttle at Bear Gulch.

About 16 miles and 7 hours.

Sunday Eric and I did a quick run up North Chalone Peak because we both had a long drive home ahead of us.

About 9 miles in 3 hours.

Horseshoes at camp on Friday evening
