Kodiak Island - Maybe there's a reason you land one direction and take off the other?

Alaska Seagull. You can recognize these because they are in Alaska.

This salmon is running, even though she appears to be swimming.

Barometer Mountain, at the end of runway 25. Lane Jacobs and I climbed this 2 years ago.

This is where I rented my 1983 pickup for the low, low price of $75 a day. It's not easy to do $75 worth of wear and tear on an old pickup that's already beat up, but I felt morally obligated so I went off-roading.

A clean break.

These are from the gold rush. They have them scattered all over town as decorations.

This baby is REALLY stuck.

Stonehenge!

These are defense communications antennas they don't use any more. They were dismantling everything and the town asked them to leave them behind.

It said, "Warning! Dangerous Radiation. Keep off." So I climbed the feeder tower.

This is some really old concrete where there might have been some artillery.
IMG_1153.jpg
Newer concrete, but still pretty old.

An Arctic Turn and a gold mine (I think).

Tight Airport Security. This is the small airport. I took this picture from the road. I found some concrete to land on a couple of miles from here.
