Backpacking the Trans-Catalina Trail

Backpacking the Trans-Catalina Trail

Four days spent backpacking along the Trans-Catalina Trail on Santa Catalina Island. Having officially opened in April of 2009, the TCT winds a little more than 37 miles from the Renton Mine Trailhead on the East End (just outside of Avalon) to Starlight Beach on the West End. Spectacular island hiking just a few dozen miles off the coast of Los Angeles in Southern California. In all, 55.4 miles were covered with just over 13’000 of elevation gained during our trip.

Shot on a Nikon D7000 + Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.4 + Tokina 12-24mm f/4 + Canon S100 all in 1080p HD.

And so the feast begins…
