Where is Santa Catalina Island? It is South of Los Angeles in California and pat of the Channel Islands archipelago.

Catalina might not be the best for remoteness, but it is famous for its trans-Catalina trail and buffalos. It offers a small airport which is not a basic air strip.

We previously tried to flight there in November but had to reroute to Joshua Tree instead because of the thick fog on the Island. This time in March was the other way around, as the forecast for the Island cleared up last minute to allow one night.
