Catalina: Day 1 – Two Harbors to Little Harbor

It’s a very early start to our day as we need to be at the San Pedro ferry terminal by 8:00am to catch the first ferry at 8:45am.  I also need to ensure that we are the first people in line, so that we can get a good place to sit on the top deck,… Continue reading Catalina: Day 1 – Two Harbors to Little Harbor

Sleep did not elude me.  In fact, I woke myself up a few times snoring!  Gannon and Cordlan on the other hand, had a much more eventful night.  We were visited by little creatures (probably mice) all night long.  They are interested in what we might have left in our packs.  I removed everything and… Continue reading Day 2: Thousand Island Lake to Shadow Lake Junction
