We anchored off Aghiyuk Island and took a tender ashore for a couple hours of hiking from the black rock beach up to a couple of saddles in the hills that gave us excellent views of the beach and cliffs on the opposite side of the island.  Aghiyuk Island is the northern most and largest of the Semidi Islands.   It has high dramatic rock formations and its gentler slopes are covered with ankle to mid-shin high vegetation.  The location is well known for its abundance of seabirds, marine mammals, and the marine resources upon which they rely.  The Semidi Islands are a group of islands of the state of Alaska, United States, lying offshore in the Gulf of Alaska.  The islands are part of Kodiak Island Borough and are located southwest of Kodiak Island, about halfway between the Alaska Peninsula mainland and Chirikof Island.

    • Thanks for your note. It was interesting to see how small and close to the ground most plants and flowers are, due to the strong winds and cool,climate. Reminded us of Japanese bonsai… Best regards, Rich E.
