An Unexpected Destination

Dutch Harbor was supposed to be just a 3-hour stopover during a trip to Akutan for research. However, the weather would not clear up, and the flight kept getting pushed back, so my colleagues and I stayed in Dutch Harbor/Unalaska for the time. It turned out to be a wonderful destination; the island has a surprising amount of stuff to do and explore.

History to Explore

Dutch Harbor/Unalaska has a lot of history to explore. From the Aleut inhabitants, to the arrival of Russian fur traders, to the WWII activities, and even to the current fad of the Discovery Channel's "The Deadliest Catch," there are plenty of opportunities to explore of the history of the area, and Alaska themselves.

    So enjoyed my home of 18 years? Glad to here the Grand Aleutian is still doing well. How about those eagles?
