Hurricane Past and Present

I thought it would be fun to take a look at a few before and after shots of Hurricane Island. Check them out!

This historic photo was taken of Hurricane's main pier, which we still use as the main pier today. I was able to locate this image based on the unique joints in the granite ledge in the foreground. This photo is taken looking down the hill from the classroom to the Galley

It is pretty cool to recognize distinct large granite boulders around the island when looking at old photographs--can you figure out which rock I used in this picture to place the historic image? What major thing do you notice that has changed in the landscape from then and now? You can read more about Hurricane Island's history here.
