Santa Cruz Island

I am a little behind on these photos. We were camping at Santa Cruz island about 5 weeks ago. Santa Cruz island is the largest of the northern islands in the Channel Islands chain off the coast of Southern California. If you are able, I highly suggest checking out some or all of the islands. They really are something special. We had some overcast days while we were there, which bummed me out from a photo standpoint, but still had an amazing time. Can't wait to return!

Friendly humpack whale on our trip out to the island. It was a mom/calf pair that were so close that my large lens couldn't get both of them in the frame!
