Pinnacle Rock

Much like the Monterey Lone Cypress, the iconic image of Point Lobos State Park is the Pinnacle, a rugged granite triangular rock that juts out to the ocean in defiance of the crashing waves that beat upon its surface.  Hiking along the bluff trail we were fortunate to surprise a pair of black-tailed deer, who paused from grazing along the cliff edge long enough to have their picture taken.  

The warm morning sun washed down on the point in natural light that made it appear striking --  the brilliant blue waters, foamy white waves, and golden rocky shore. The restless waves pounded  the granite rocks rhythmically and relentlessly.  The formations slowly become sculpted into new shapes those found here at The Slot.

The Slot

The formations slowly become sculpted into new shapes those found here at The Slot.  I remember when we visited Niagara Falls, and the tour boat captain guided us close to the magnificent waterfalls and triumphantly announced, “THIS is Niagara Falls!”  Well, I am here to tell you that for me, “THIS is Point Lobos!”
