On January 27, 2011 my sisters, my big brother, and my grandparents got on a ferry at San Francisco, and went to Angel Island. We were planning to make it to the top by lunchtime.
The hiking was mostly easy, but it was hard at some places. We saw lots of white, small, and very pretty butterflies. We saw 4 deer, and they looked like they were used to people because they didn't run away. When we got to the top, there was a beautiful view of all the cities and the bay.
It took us 4 hours to go up and down. We ate lunch up at the top, too. You could hear the city noise. The island was about 700 ' high. An island is land surrounded by water, so that makes it 'sea locked'. Only rangers live on the island, but you can camp there overnight. There is also a fort there.
Going to Angel Island was lots of fun; I hope to go there again soon.
On the ferry we went right by Alcatraz Island. There is Angel Island in the distance.

Most of the hike was in the shade, but this spot was sunny.
We are at the T O P !
