Angel Island

We spent our last weekend adventure exploring Angel Island on Sunday. Visitors must take a ferry, so we took the Tiburon Ferry on the north side. Angel Island is considered the Ellis Island of the West, and many Chinese immigrants passed through the Immigration Station from 1910-1940s.

We hiked 5 miles, which took us up to Mt. Livermore at 788 feet, then down to Fort McDowell and the Immigration Station. We got to view the city and Alcatraz one last time before we head out on Friday.
