channel islands kayaking and backpacking

We'll be kickin' it California style as we head to Channel Islands National Park off the coast of Santa Barbara.  Join Wright, Anne, Kirsten, and Zach as we peruse the main island via foot, kayak, or whatever method of transportation you prefer (BYOS bring your own rocketship).  From there we will head back north to Big Sur to backpack a peak shaped like a cone - Cone Peak.  This peak stands alone, high above the surrounding area, at 5,155 ft only three miles back from the ocean shore.  Can't beat that kind of view.
