Training hike #1: Pinnacles High Peaks Loop

During MLK weekend, we took a day trip to Pinnacles National Park (with our brand new National Parks Pass, courtesy of my family for Christmas!) and hiked a beautiful 8.4 mile loop around the park. We had great company — three of my fellow graduate students came along! and nice cool weather. MUCH better than the 110+ degree temperatures we had at Pinnacles in June, which was brutal.
