View of San Francisco, 1990s, from Angel Island. Trees in foreground are mostly Australian Blue-Gum Eucalyptus, (that were removed) by the Park Service in order to make way for the replanting of native species. Dana describes an island covered with trees, and of course in those days, the view of SF would have shown a windswept, sandy land covered with hills and valleys.
