Catalina Trip

Postby quentinc » Mon Jan 03, 2011 11:40 am

I just did a 4 day backpack on Catalina Island (just off the coast of LA).

It was starting to green up from all the rain (although it will be really nice in a couple of weeks):

The view from some of the ridges was like a poor man's Hawaii:

As was this beach campground:

And the cove it was in:

Image

There was a beautiful sunset on New Year's day:

And wildlife you don't see in the Sierra:

Image

And views of snow-capped mountains on the mainland:

Rest of the pictures are here: Image

The beach campground shot really does look like it could have been taken in Hawaii.
Thank you for sharing them Q, I will have to get out there one day.

thanks for the post. I very much need to get to this place (mainly because I want to see the geology there).
Since my fishing (etc.) website is still down, you can be distracted by geology stuff at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/csm/ees/facu ... ayshi.html
