To Pinnacles we go!

Pinnacles of Rhyolite from an ancient volcano.

I wanted to take a minute to tell you about the fantastic place we will visit on this year’s 4th and 5th grade camping trip, but then my favorite daily blog did it for me!  Earth Science Picture of the Day shared the above image on their blog and explained the interesting geology of the igneous rocks in Pinnacles National Monument.  This place contains caves where bats live and breed, is a habitat for the endangered California Condor, and home to the Yellow-Billed Magpie, one of California’s endemic species.  Camping in a beautiful spot is my idea of fun!  See you all on Friday!
