SUNDAY, APRIL 26 KODIAK, ALASKA, USA

1. Kodiak is the Alaskan “Emerald Isle”. The biggest tourist draw in Kodiak is the Kodiak bear, all of whom are not yet awake from their long winter’s nap. So – we had no fear of disturbing them as we explored Ft. Abercrombie State Park.
2, 3 & 4. The Fort was built as part of the North Pacific’s WW 2 defense system. The amount of moss covering everything in the forest is incredible!
5 & 6. This is Holy Resurrection Orthodox Cathedral, built in 1794 it is the first Orthodox parish in North America. The present church, built in 1945, is the 3rd one built on this site.
7. A small gift shop helps to support the parish.
8. The Russian Orthodox Seminary Chapel- just up the hill from the Cathedral. 9. An eagle and a raven find a perch in St. Paul’s harbor.
10. A bit of sunshine lights up the snowy mountains.
