Catalina Island Menagerie

Lots or Birds, Fish and seasonally Whales and Seals.  But on land you'll be fortunate to see the local Foxes (which climb trees) and the Bison that were introduced in the early 1900's.  I highly recommend taking the Catalina Island Conservancy Tour.

We were lucky to see the Foxes before they went climbing:

You'll remember the critter proof trash containers that featured the Foxes:

And the Bison, originally brought there for a movie I believe:

Santa Catalina Island

On our Summer California Trip we decided to visit Santa Catalina Island.  We certainly want to go back and spend more time.

I'm going to begin my posts with scene from a Jeep Tour we took with the Catalina Island Conservancy.  They own most of the Island (Thanks to Mr Wrigley) and it is the only way to see the interior.

The Beach at the Two Harbors Area:

Below, interesting Geology.  The Island has a volcanic origin and this appeared to be a volcanogenic sulfide deposit:
