Trail Quest: Anacapa Island

Starting a new series of articles on the Channel Islands. During the last ice age, when the sea level was 300-400 feet lower, the four islands off our coast – Anacapa, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, and San Miguel – were part of one larger, single island called Santarosae. The series will trace an imagined traverse across Santarosae starting with what is now Anacapa.

The first article appears in section A of the October 22nd, 2018 edition of Santa Barbara News-Press

Older articles can be seen by scrolling down or using the search feature in the upper right corner. Articles from the News-Press appear here a couple months after they appear in the paper.
