    Who ever cut those pieces up for firewood did a nice job.
    I wonder if they used a chainsaw?

    Here's sort of a tour of the 5 mile trail across Santa Cruz Island (it's the chicken shaped channel island). It was pretty dang rugged terrain, easy one way, not so easy the way back. But, it was really different from Santa Barbara. It was about an hour or so boat ride.

    Sea Lions (plus a lady's head):


    Oil rig:


    Dolphin:


    Blue whale:




    Island:


    View of old farming stuff from trail (the island was apparently used soley for farming not too long ago):


    Another view, higher up:


    Once again:


    Stand of iron wood trees (I think) which are extinct on the mainland:

    Crud load of pinecones on a dead tree (first rest stop):


    There was a sort of ravene (sp?) where there was a lot of ferns.




    Here's the magic of CA, where you can find cacti right next to ferns:


    Some really nice scenery after the ditch:








    Some sort of dormant native bush (forgot the name):


    Very near the end of the trail, a little pool of water at the back of a dried river:

    Lil succulent at the end of the trail:


    (Orange are starfish):


    Lizard:


    Tide pool:


    Back at the pool, a little frog less than an inch long:


    Going back to the boat, a lizard again:


    And again:


    A little stream I found about 20 feet from the shore:


    And I also spotted some bat rays on the dock before we departed. All in all, it was freakin' sweet!!! (Almost got heat stroke or something, despite the nice scenery, it was hot.)

    I beleve those are island oak forests in the ravines- a relict species that died out on the mainland millions of years ago.
    that makes no logic
