theparkjunkie Pinnacles NP is small, but its position in the Gabilan Mountains offers a somewhat remote feeling due to the lack of roads crossing the oark from east to west. Accessing the interior of the park requires hiking and the park is hot and dry during the summer months. I found a February visit was perfect, as daytime temps were in the 60s which provided excellent hiking conditions. . . . . . #pinnacles #pinnaclesnationalpark #balconiestrail #gabilanmountains #newestnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparklife #nationalparksusa #nationalparkgeek #nationalparktour #nationalparkstour #nationalparkstoday #nationalparks2018 #theparkjunkie #nationalparktour2018 #npcollective #national_park #national_parks #national_park_pictures #nationalparkjunkie #parkjunkie #visitnationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #hikrlife #takeahike #hikepinnacles #shotoniphone #parkjunkieforlife

theparkjunkie Pinnacles NP is home to several talus caves that are open for exploration by curious thrillseekers... These caves are formed by falling boulders that are lodged in between canyon walls, which over time with numerous boulders, forms a sort of cave. They are short passageways and wicked fun to exlore. They are bordered on both sides by gates can be closed off by park service in times of inclement weather, as waterflow in these narrow canyons can pose a serious hazard to anyone trapped within their walls. Some areas allow a shaft or two of light, but headlamps are necessary as deeper areas are completely black. This is the view gazing upward near the exit of the Balconies Cave. . . . . . #pinnacles #pinnaclesnationalpark #balconiescave #gabilanmountains #newestnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparklife #nationalparksusa #nationalparkgeek #nationalparktour #nationalparkstour #nationalparkstoday #nationalparks2018 #nationalparkstour2018 #nationalparktour2018 #npcollective #national_park #national_parks #national_park_pictures #nationalparkjunkie #parkjunkie #visitnationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #hikrlife #takeahike #hikepinnacles #shotoniphone #parkjunkieforlife

piotr_angiel Incredible rocks formations of the Bryce National Park in the early spring season. For this early morning photography against the sun I was able to "use" the orange cliff walls of the Bryce Canyon as a huge reflector to soften the shadows. Possibly, it was the largest reflector I have ever used!⠀ ⠀ #usa #unitedstates #bryce #brycecanyon #brycenationalpark #brycenps #nps #nationalparkgeek #national_park_photography #national_park_pictures #goparks #landscape #landscapephotography #thehikershandbook #optoutside #igersmountains #hiking #climbing #artoftheshutter #mountains #bestmountainartists #mountain_greatshots #iglandscape #NationalParks #findyourpark #naturepics #global_hotshotz #wanderlust #artofvisuals #wildernessculture

theparkjunkie Hiking in Pinnacles National Park offers endless opportunities to photograph the unique terrain. The entire park can be covered on foot by an avid hiker in 2-3 days. I find the landscape to be among my favorites, as it is possible to scramble about on the rocks, which provides a childlike enjoyment for park junkies such as myself. . . . . . #pinnacles #pinnaclesnationalpark #highpeakstrail #gabilanmountains #newestnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparklife #nationalparksusa #nationalparkgeek #nationalparktour #nationalparkstour #nationalparkstoday #nationalparks2018 #nationalparkstour2018 #nationalparktour2018 #npcollective #national_park #national_parks #national_park_pictures #nationalparkjunkie #parkjunkie #visitnationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #hikrlife #takeahike #hikepinnacles #shotoniphone #parkjunkieforlife

theparkjunkie Pinnacles National Park features a display of skyward reaching volcanic rock, decorated with colorful lichen, deposited by an ancient volcano that last erupted some 23 million years ago. This rock has since moved nearly 200 miles northward, thanks to its location along the San Andreas Fault. Scientists today estimate the NW movement of these rocks at roughly 2 inches per year. In time, this will lessen the commute time for those looking to visit the park from the Bay Area... 😉 . . . . . #pinnacles #pinnaclesnationalpark #highpeakstrail #gabilanmountains #newestnationalpark #nationalpark #nationalparks #nationalparklife #nationalparksusa #nationalparkgeek #nationalparktour #nationalparkstour #nationalparkstoday #nationalparks2018 #nationalparkstour2018 #nationalparktour2018 #npcollective #national_park #national_parks #national_park_pictures #nationalparkjunkie #parkjunkie #visitnationalparks #americasbestidea #findyourpark #hikrlife #takeahike #hikepinnacles #shotoniphone #parkjunkieforlife

naturesalbum Last month while in Yosemite we were treated to a couple of beautiful mornings with just the right conditions for fog and forests filled with spectacular light beams! We are total suckers for light beams (don't get much of that here in Phoenix, ha, ha) and went a little crazy, taking several hundred photos of the lighting phenomenon each day. So captivating though! #yosemitenationalpark #yosemitenps #yosemite #fog #lightbeamz #lightbeam #landscapephotography #thegreatoutdoors #nature_brilliance #nationalparkgeek #trees #smoke #wildcalifornia #westbysouthwest #ig_southwest #national_park_pictures #national_park_photography #visitcalifornia #roadtrip #nikonusa

seedlingarts The Virgin River before entering The Narrows of the canyon. I’ll be really sad to drive right past Zion without going in in a few months. Always such a hard decision between visiting new places and revisiting old favorites!
