Vasquez Rocks named after the bandit Tiburcio Vasquez AKA “The Scourge of California,” used these rocks as his hideout in 1873. I can see why he would.
I had originally mapped out a trail but decided to not use it when we got there. We just did it old school and explored anything and everything that looked interesting.
This also meant getting our hands and body dirty. Jp took a picture of me when I was on all fours on this wall (which I’m not posting!), yelling that I was stuck and couldn’t move. She thought it was hilarious. -_-
But I made it! And Jp did too after getting stuck 3 times in the same spot. Not so funny now, huh Jp? 😛
This place is really, really cool and beautiful. It was windy that day though so sometimes we had to stop mid-climb while the wind was blowing so we didn’t get knocked down.
Vasquez Rocks is a popular filming location. Star Trek, Power Rangers, Battlestar Galactica, Jay and Silent Bob, Planet of the Apes, and the list goes on forever. So it was like walking through movie sets.
I took Jake with us instead of Princess Uni because I sleep with her and she started to smell funny. So she stays home now. Until the next adventure!…
