Honestly, Peshastin Pinnacles State Park (WA) is a tiny little park. I double anyone will come this way, just for this park. However, I was so pleasantly surprised by all the rock formations in a small area (less than 35 acre). Of course, as I mentioned before, I am a big fan of rock formations. So, naturally I was so glad that I found this park. Well-built trails weave through the 200-foot-high sandstone spires that perch on a sun-kissed hillside scattered with colorful trees. For hours I spent in this small park, hiking, wondering, and taking pictures of all the rock formations.
And guess what? There was only one other person shared this park with me. When I reached the top, the man was lying on top of a rock, enjoyed the scenery. Both of us surprised each other, a little bit, and ended up talking for awhile, marveled about the beauty of this lesser known place.
I have been caught by surprise, in a pleasant way, many times, in such not-so-well-known places. Of course, such astonishment is always welcomed, warmly. 🙂
