Angel Island -- once again

Maybe it is just copy-and-paste, but Wikipedia is my go-to source:
Until about ten thousand years ago, Angel Island was connected to the mainland; it was cut off by the rise in sea levels due to the end of the last ice age. From about two thousand years ago the island was a fishing and hunting site for Coast Miwok Native Americans.

No mention in the Wikipedia article that Donald Kinney is rather fond of this island. But it has been 44 years since I last set foot on her--a situation I really should remedy soon.   [not a new image--taken November 2011]

And this isn't a new image either, but I guess there is no harm in showing it again.   [taken late in February of this year]

Glorious photos of Angel Island! I have heard you can camp out on Angel Island - I'd love to see the nighttime images you'd get of the city and the bridge if you should do that... :-)
