In the center there is where the Ferry departs from.
It was a clear warm day in the Bay area, and I decided to venture over and check out Angel Island
. I took the ferry from Tiburon, which was only USD $11 for a round trip ticket. It is only a mile ride from Tiburon to the docking area on Angel Island, so it is just a 15 minute ride or so. Angel Island
had a military presence in the West Garrison, in the East Garrison, the guns on the West side of the island, and the Nike Missile Station as well. The buildings that remain today largely appear to be circa World War II, housing GIs for up to a week or so while they waited to be shipped out to their duties in the Pacific.
This day we were not permitted to hike above Perimeter road due to the fires that had hit the island the previous month in October. There were still some great views and photo opportunities. Some friends hiked Angel Island more recently (Mar 2009), and were able to hike above Perimeter road to the summit of the island, so I expect that would still be true today.
