Harbor Defenses of Sitka, Alaska



LOCATION : St. Lazaria Island








I took these photos of St. Lazaria Island scenery.  The two views from the top of Mt. Edgecumbe are from 23 August 2003.  The second two photos are from Shoals Point in March 2004.  The next four are from a boat in March 2005.  The final two are from 13 August 2005 taken from on the island.
