Photographer's Note

Hello all,
this is a southwestern view of Anacapa Island. Anacapa or Anypakh as the Native American Chumash Indians named it, is comprised of three small islets, West, Middle and East island. Only the East allows visitors in small numbers and is accessible only by boat. The islands are volcanic and are situated off the coast near Ventura, California. They are now part of the National Park System. Almost 5 miles long, East Anacapa is about 2 square miles and has a small loop trail, a visitor center and a lighthouse. Oh and a small campground as well.
This photo was taken during a low tide time so many rocks along the coast are exposed. This side of the island is where the sea lions congregate and live. The islands are a host of 150 unique species of plant and animal life and so the islands have been dubbed "The Galapagos of the North". It was a glorious day to be out on the islands.
Thanks for looking and enjoy my photo...
