This is the view from 4,000 feet above Santa Barbara looking south towards Santa Cruz Island. Part of Channel Islands National Park. To the right is Santa Rosa island and far to the right is San Miguel Island. The Channel Islands are America's Galapagos Islands and home to the oldest dated human remains in North America—Arlington Springs Woman (13,000 BP). The world's most complete pygmy mammoth specimen was discovered on Santa Rosa Island in 1994. These miniature mammoths, only four to six feet tall, once roamed island grasslands and forests during the Pleistocene era.
