'C' Is For Cave Dwellers

2:10 pm - We had a great time at Pinnacles today. There were lots of great views and some interesting geology.

We took the loooong way to the cache from the Chapparral Ranger station up the Juniper Canyon Trail, then the Tunnel Trail, then High Peaks, Old Pinnacles, Balconies Cave and finally Balconies trail, for a total of 7.7 miles. Only the first mile or so was tough.

The cave was exciting. We only had one headlamp, so I used my Treo as my flashlight. The funniest part was when we entered the cave and couldn't find find the way up! It was really dark in there.

We did get a bit wet later, but it was worth it. Thanks! Posted by jeff at March 13, 2005 02:10 PM
