In April 2011, I once again arrived on the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge to start another season of seabird research working with PRBO Conservation Science. In my seventh and perhaps last season, I decided to start a photo a day challenge for myself. The challenge is to share a new and interesting photo for each day I am on the island this year.
This is the view of the island from the West. Virtually every rock, ridge and mound on this island is named. Most were christened by the Coast Guard when they occupied the island but we've added a few of our own. The mound on the far left is Sugarloaf, the middle peak is Lighthouse Hill (the highest point on the island) then Maintop and Great Arch. And all the little peaks have names too. I spend most of my time on Corm Blind Hill, a smaller peak that from this angle blends in with Lighthouse Hill.
