Certainly someone somewhere has done a study on how travelers approach the various national parks of California (we picture them doing this study while wearing a very smart and crisp ranger uniform). Visitors to the redwoods might make a point to hike, say, while people who go Death Valley commonly pack a bicycle, say. And the Channel Islands? They are quite popular with the day-trippers who get a good sense of the glorious and gloriously wild islands. But others choose to build a longer trip around the well-preserved Pacific jewels. They want to spend a night and see corners that only people making a longer excursion get to savor. Is this you, or the you you want to be? Then best read more about the new Channel Islands Adventure from REI Adventures.
