About Pinnacles National Park:

Pinnacles NP, located sixty miles south of Monterey, was formed by multiple volcanoes which erupted more than 20 million years ago along the San Andreas Fault. The resulting landscape is punctuated by rock spires and pitted with talus caves, home to 13 different species of bats. Pinnacles is one of the only places in the world to spot the endangered California Condor, with the largest wing-span of any bird in North America
