​Eagles are plentiful.  You can easily see over a hundred driving across town.  They are protected by law.  they are used to humans, and it is not difficult to get within a few feet to photograph. ALTHOUGH, I DO SUGGEST USING A TELEPHOTO LENS.

THE ROAD TO DUTCH HARBOR


This book tells how I ended up in Dutch Harbor, Alaska.  The road went through Anaktuvuk Pass, Alaska, 150 miles north of The Arctic Circle, where I took a job in a small town of Inland Eskimos which just did not work out.  Available on AMAZON and other typical outlets.

ARIZONA TO ALASKA


I have been doing a blog on WEATHERUNDERGROUND.COM for over 6 years as joealaska.  A loyal group of followers from the USA and elsewhere participates through comments.


By itself, WEATHERUNDERGROUND is a pretty cool website.  It also is a place where there are millions of outdoor photos  posted from around the world.



DUTCH HARBOR AND PEARL HARBOR ARE THE ONLY PLACES IN THE USA TO BE BOMBED DURING WAR TIMES.  


SIGNS OF WW2 CAN BE SEEN ALL OVER DUTCH HARBOR.   THE REMAINS OF FORT SCHWATKA ARE FOUND ON TOP OF MT. BALLYHOO.  WW2 BUNKERS ARE EVERYWHERE, INCLUDING SOME SITES MILES OUT OF TOWN.

Unalaska Island is covered with tundra.  There are no trees.  The soil is spongy to walk on, and consists of a layer of low thick plants.  In the Fall, some of the plants turn from green to bright red.  It is easy to climb the steep hillsides.  Just use the tundra and grab on.






Foxes are not native to Unalaska Island.  They were brought over many years ago by Russians who wanted a source of fur.  Even though it was illegal to feed them, they often came by my porch and ate the food that I put there for cats or whatever.  They came in many colors and had many different personalities.  They were never aggressive.  My cat chased them away and was one third their size.
