"the tops of the Gabilan mountains flamed with the light of the sun"

The Gabilan Mountain Range lies between the Salinas Valley and the Diablo Range on California’s Central Coast. The mountain range holds two national parks, Fremont Peak and the Pinnacles National Park.

‘Gabilan’ means ‘sparrow hawk’ in Spanish.
