Image of 1975 view from across the Mitchell Ridge site.
Prior to modern development the topography of the core of Galveston Island was dominated by sand ridges and swales that paralleled the beach. In this 1975 view across part of the Mitchell Ridge site, the grasses in the foreground cover a swale while the trees in the background mark a sand ridge.
