Saturday Smiles: Seeing San Miguel from the Mountain!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Pictured above in the distance is San Miguel one of the Channel Islands along the Santa Barbara Coastline. This time of the year, we have magnificent clear days.

San Miguel Island is the westernmost of California's Channel Islands, located across the Santa Barbara Channel in the Pacific Ocean, within Santa Barbara County, California. San Miguel is the sixth-largest of the eight Channel Islands at 9,325 acres, including offshore islands and rocks.Wikipedia

There are camping facilities on the island.  There are also two airstrips, as well as a research station.  There is fossil evidence of dwarf mammoths and a giant mouse. There is a fur seal breeding colony and it is the third largest breeding area, and home of the small foxes.

We have not visited yet, but it is in our plans.  Experts have said that the US Channel Islands surpass  the Galapagos in terms of nature life as well as the unusual creatures.

Wishing Everyone an abundance of Saturday smiles and a great weekend!

Kat Palmiotti  It is known as a deer mouse, but on San Miguel they are bigger.  This is a picture from the Park site.  They feed on larvaie and bugs, it is pretty cute, not resemblance to Mickey or Minnie.

Wayne Martin I am amazed at the history.  At one time there were wool sheep ranches that were on the island. A

Ed Silva we are blessed with several islands here.  Santa Cruz is the one we see most often and that is also rich in nature  and conservation.  One of the smaller island became a refuge for the bald eagle that has thrived as a result.  There is even a web cam where the fledglings can be seen.  A

Kathy Streib it is a bit complicated.  The US Navy owned the island and used it as a lookout during WWII.  They have since created a trail and removed all the mines or dangerous artifacts, and one has to sign a waiver.  There are camping grounds (not our style), however, if we can get on a helicopter to get there....worning on it.
