Special Features

Cabin is a popular destination for Sitkans. Views down and across Nakwasina Sound. In the early 1960s, several forested areas in Nakwasina Sound were harvested. During the summer, the vegetation pattern in these areas appears more dense (overstory of alder with understory of spruce and hemlock) and a brighter green than the darker, less dense tops of the surrounding hemlock-spruce forest. Saltwater fishing and deer hunting are possible from this cabin. Brown bear frequent the area.
