This week’s Day-cation brings us to the wonderful extra terrestrial Vasquez Rocks. An area with free hiking and unbelievable sight seeing, this rock formation is a tremendous place to take the family for an outing.

The jagged rocks may look familiar and that’s because it has been in several major motion pictures and television shows including Austin Powers, Bonanza, Buck Rodgers, The Flintstones, and most familiarized as the Vulcan Planet in Star Trek. Vasquez Rocks is easy to access off the 14 freeway and the Agua Dulce Exit.

The stunning rock formations are easy to climb if you bring a good pair of hiking shoes. Always when hiking bring plenty of water, sunscreen, a hat, sun-glasses, long-sleeve shirt, and a buddy for safety reasons in case you get lost or injured. For more check out Cougar News on Wednesday March 3rd.
