Point Lobos, California State Park – All Photos (c) 2009 Russell Johnson
Don’t know much about geology, but what I am learning defines me, in the nature of things, as the insignifcant biped that I am.
Paid a visit to the Pinnacles National Monument. Not recommended during the summer as the temperatures regularly hover around the 100F mark. The best time to go is in the cool spring when the wildflowers are blooming.
I did learn (in the air conditioned comfort of a interpretive center) that The Pinnacles are actually the weathered remnants of an ancient volcano, half of which hitched its way along the tectonic freeway and is now holed up in some rock motel north of Los Angeles.
But as movers and shakers go, Point Lobos is the clear winner.
