Vasquez Rocks, 4.6 Miles RT, November 5, 2017

Sunday was fun day so we paid a visit to Vasquez Rocks, a favorite film location for movie makers and photographers alike.  If these rocks look familiar to you, you’ve probably seen them in Blazing Saddles, the Flintstones movie or most notably Star Trek… Remember that horrible (or awesome depending on how you look at it) fight between Captain Kirk and Gorn?  We hiked the 4.6 mile loop trail that takes you around the park, past some interesting Native American petroglyphs and onto a section of the PCT.  I recommend saving this one one for the cooler months, as the trail is mostly exposed with little to no shade.  After our trek around the outskirts of the park, we headed over to the the famous jagged rocks and did a little climbing.  You can get some really impressive looking photos even though they’re not really that difficult.  It was a fun day.

 I am not sure who left these here. Aliens?  You never know what you'll find on the trail some days.  :)
