Channel Islands National Park

Channel Islands National Park consists of five islands, three of which we've visited and have pages listed below.  Click the pictures to enter the page about that island.  The Channel Islands are referred to as the "Galapagos of North America".  Each island has its own unique endemic species found nowhere else and it's own history.  See the official National Parks site linked below to plan your visit.
