Arriving Home

Mothers Day wkd in Beluga Cabin

Atka Pt 2

We were treated to a feast of local game (halibut, salmon cake, reindeer), plus food flown in.  Apparently the only wildlife on the islands are foxes, some rats accidentally introduced by WWII ships, reindeer that were introduced, and gazzilions of migratory birds.  One of the contractors was a biologist and a birder.  What a unique group of folks.  She was in bird counting heaven.
