Photograph of a view of the Arch Rock at the Anacapa Island near Santa Cruz, California, ca.1900. A large arched is cut through the large rock. The topside is covered with vegetation. Waves are crashing into the rock (foreground). A large ship is visible in the distance.; "Anacapa Island is located 14 miles off the coast from Ventura. It is the only Channel Island to retain its American Indian name, derived from the Chumash word, "Eneepah", meaning island of deception or mirage. Ocean waves have eroded the perimeter of the island, creating steep sea cliffs towering hundreds of feet in height and exposing the volcanic origins of air pockets, lava tubes, and sea caves. At the east end of Anacapa a natural bridge has formed in the ocean. Forty-foot high Arch Rock is a trademark of Anacapa and Channel Islands National Park. Arch Rock is a natural bridge formed by sea erosion." -- unknown author.
