This week LAist reader and Flickr featured photos contributor Ryo Chiba shared some amazing shots from his recent camping trip near Two Harbors on Catalina Island which is about a one hour's boat ride from Long Beach or San Pedro. We liked them so much, we had to ask more about his trip.

"The trip didn't take much advance planning besides bringing gear and paying for the ferry, which was $66 round trip," he said of the overnight adventure. "We reserved the campsite on the island after getting off of the boat, which was an easy and inexpensive (less than $20 per person) process. The camp will provide sleeping mats and firewood for a small fee. The campground itself was very well maintained and had a great view itself as it overlooked the harbor."

Chiba and his friends hiked around the area, saw bison and enjoyed the views. "As the photos may illustrate, the scenery was remarkable," he said.
