Klare Nichols uses her left hand to block the sun from her face as she makes her way up the rock face on Flumes Formation at Pinnacles National Park on July 4.

She and a handful of friends took the national holiday to go climbing, entering the park from the west side near Soledad, which is about an hour drive from her home in Monterey. Bright, warm sun cover the brown and green landscape most of the afternoon.

Nichols found climbing eight years ago while studying at Oregon State University.

"There were two climbing gyms on campus and a friend asked if I wanted to go," she says. "And I was hooked."
