After spending the weekend in Monterey Bay, on Veterans Day, 16 scouts and 5 adults drove to Pinnacles National Monument and completed a 6.1 mile rim of the bay hike. We started in the Bear Gulch parking lot, hiked through the caves (thanks for the flashlight Evan!) and took a breather at the Bear Gulch reservoir. We then hiked uphill to the rim portion of the trail and then back down for an early dinner of sandwiches and chips. We saw no condors, but our resident geologist Ben Heningburg pointed out various rock, ash and mud formations along the way. A thanks goes out to Adam Boles our scout leader and the other adult leaders who helped make this hike happen.
