How can this place call itself a town. Sure they have a two "hotels", two restaurants and a store but there are no houses. There is a gas pump. But from the airport terminal door you can see the whole town including the little cabin we're in, all the worse for wear with no hot water, right in the center of things.

... with only their tufted ears visible. One red salmon equals about 4,500 calories - on a good day, a bear can eat over 90 fish, which using lose math, means ca. 100,000 calories per day.

... of the National Park. Hence at this time of year, before the salmon are back in the rivers to spawn, bears in any number are found along the shore. We were rather disappointed that we weren't able to go bear-spotting on Kodiak Island, but we're told that at the moment, the bears are up in the mountains and will only congregate around salmon streams later in the summer. Hence our flight across to Hallo Bay where we spend ...
