Tim Hauf is a nature/travel photographer who has traveled to many remote corners of the planet with a desire to create a better understanding and appreciation of the world around us through photography.  His list of published books include unique destinations such as the Himalaya of Nepal; South America’s remote Patagonia region at the southern tip of the continent; the rugged wilderness of northern Manitoba, Canada; and South Africa’s remarkable World Heritage Sites.  His photographs have appeared in numerous publications throughout the world, including Islands, Sunset, Asia Pacific Travel, Explore, Terre Sauvage, South Africa Times, and others.  The Channel Islands have a special appeal to Tim, so close to the California mainland, yet a world apart with each island as well as the surrounding ocean environment having its own uniqueness.  This is Tim’s second book on Channel Islands National Park.

Channel Islands National Park includes five islands off California’s coast.  They can be reached from Oxnard’s Channel Islands Harbor via island concessionaire, Island Packers. Anacapa Island and Santa Cruz Island are the closest islands and are about an hour by boat. Sea kayaking, whale watching, hiking and bird watching are the most common activities on the islands.
