Vasquez Rocks and Channel Islands

It's 3 months too late, but better late than never eh? We did a trip to LA during the Labor Day weekend. Naturally, we had to visit Vasquez Rocks, it being one of the most featured rocks in Sci-Fi films.

















We still had plenty of daylight, so we decided to drive up the famous Mulholland Drive, which proved to be quite disappointing.
















The main attraction was Channel Islands. We had to book our boat ride tickets well in advance.

















Remember to carry sandwiches, snacks, water and sodas with you as there is nothing available on the island. The cliffs overlooking Potato harbor are great to stop for lunch. But the harbor itself is inaccessible from the top. The only access to the water is by boat.


Hiking at Pinnacles National Park

We spent the day after Thanksgiving at Pinnacles National Park. The weather was crisp and cool, with very light traffic, probably because everyone else was busy shopping.

We did a 5 mile hike via the reservoir to Scout's peak and back to the visitor's center.

I would love doing this hike again, but probably not during the warmer part of the year. It was great to see 23 million year old lava formations but scary to know that it's so close to the Bay Area.
