Youth v. Millenia
I stopped by Pinnacles Youth Park, just north of Columbia yesterday. What a gorge-ous (ahem) little gem of natural beauty! Above are some photos I shot (sorry for the glaring date/time stamps).
I did what might technically be called "scrambling" to get up to the ridge. I'll call it scrambling, as that word makes me sound more youthful than to use a more accurate description, like scuffling, crawling, or dragging myself up the rock.
Acrophobe that I am, I nonetheless did "climb" (again, maybe exaggerated) the namesake rock formations, and found the view and breeze worth all the effort. I doubt I'll ever get the Wife up there, but with some supervision I think it's a really spectacular place to take the kids. Those uninterested in climbing can nonetheless enjoy the scenery from below and cool their feet in the stream.
"Ascribe greatness to our God, the Rock!"
