Garden to the Sky Trail

The World > North America > USA > California > Santa Catalina Island

The divide ontop of Catalina has a spectacular view of both sides of the island with a view of west side of the island, Avalon Bay and Avalon. Most trail guide say this is a short trail, that it is, but it's a steep short trail. When you start the trail you have already hiked from the boat landing to the botanical garden, then through the garden to the start of the trail.

My recorded track from the landing to the devide road and back to the landing was 7 miles and a total gain and lost of 1066 feet. All the trail guild do not take into account there are no public transportation to the trails heads.

My pack contained a heavy tripod, heavy panorama head, full from DSLR, plus two liters of water, lunch and my ten essentials.

Questa è una vista generale di USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
