Congratulations to Elaine of Tukwila, winner of the last contest. The photo shows Peshastin Pinnacles State Park, which is close to the smack-dab middle of Washington State.
A description from the state park website reads: Standing tall against the orchards and golden hills of the Wenatchee Valley, a grouping of tooth-like pinnacles will surely catch your eye. Turn off Highway 2 for a closer look at the rich sandstone slabs of Peshastin Pinnacles State Park. Hike the switch-back trails, and take in the panoramic views of the Cascades to the west and the sage-covered hills to the east. Experience a spectacular sunset, as the pinnacles and Wenatchee River glow bright in the low-angle light.
Rock climbers, grab your rack, your favorite belay partner and a few liters of water (there is none in the park), and get out on some of the grippiest rock in the state. Not a hiker or climber? No problem! Find a shaded picnic table, and watch the vertical action from below.
Whether you prefer photography, nature-gazing or smearing up a rock face, this park will leave you energized and inspired.
