Island Exploration

Yesterday, we took a drive up to the northern part of the island, which juts out into the Bering Sea. We're trying to take advantage of good weather when we get it, and the day was perfect-- sunny and warm. Today we were back to rain and wind.

The drive took us past lakes, the island's sole stand of trees (now missing the sign that once read "Ad ak National Forest") and a gorgeous lagoon known for its wildlife. The lagoon didn't disappoint; we saw sea otters, too many birds to count, including an eagle, and a harbor seal. If you look very closely, you can spot each animal in one of the photos below. The seal is a particular challenge!

We also explored some abandoned military facilities. More on that (and lots of pictures) to follow later this week.
