On Saturday, 3-28 I went hiking with a bunch of friends. After getting up earlier than we wanted to on a weekend, we met up at Levi's Stadium to carpool down. The drive south of Hollister was rather scenic and fun. We did a loop from the east side of the park. The trailhead lots were full when we arrived, and there was an hour wait for the shuttle to them, so we had to change our plans and leave from the visitors center. From there we walked to the Old Pinnacles Trailhead, getting our first views of the rocks along the way.

Thankfully, no one was afraid of heights, so the high peaks section went by without incident.

|A bridge. Don't look down!|
