The Channel Islands offshore of Santa Barbara are places Matt Kettmann (bottom) and Tyler Hayden (top) know well, though both are Northern California natives. Matt gave his son the middle name of Carrington, in romantic memory of his proposal to his wife on Santa Rosa Island’s Carrington Point during one of many trips out there. Tyler’s visited several of the nearby islands, covering issues such as unexploded ordnance, panga boats, and rats. This week they both look at the story behind the documentary West of the West.
