- In The Aleutian Islands
Polar Eden Pt. 2
Tremendous sea storms regularly descend on this remote coastal range. The mountains make land access impossible, yet they also protect a handful of small coves from wind, rain, and swell. Although these small sandy crescents hide in fjord-like inlets, they are not so deeply set that can’t receive swell.
Groomed peaks break in glassy water, over shapely sand bars. The bars are triangle-shaped and supplied by small streams, forming a-frames up and down the shores.
These satellite photos are pulled back far enough to show an impenetrable wilderness that conceals the region. The forest is both lush and frigid at the same time, a place of untouched beauty and danger. Exploring the area by boat is no easy task either. The closest harbor is over 250 miles away, and the storm trains that show up in a moments notice make boating a risky endeavor.
