Cold Bay is so rich in wildlife, and it offers no physical challanges, the terrain being faily level, that this is an excellent place to spend some time, hike a bit, make camp, and see the animals.
The birds are attracted by the eelgrass, the predators are attracted by the birds, and the carribou come by in the fall after calving, bringing along wolves.
Bring plenty of foul weather gear, and your favorite birders guide.
If you come in berry season, you won't go hungry! Salmon-Berries, Cranberries, Strawberries, and Crowberries, all ripen in late summer.
Don't neglect our tundra wildflowers: Yellow Monkey Flowers, Rusty Cottongrass, Nutica Lupine, River Beauty (Dwarf Fireweed), and spectacular Monk's Hood (Poisonous!) make this an attractive place to hike.
Heart Attack! while hiking, you probably will scare up some Willow Ptarmigan, our State Bird. They don't flush until you are right on top of them, and it will scare the bejeezus out of you!
Cold Bay is the headquarters of Izembek National Wildlife Refuge, a Wetland of International Importance. Izembek Refuge is a VT Destination, so I have tips there, but just a hint, the rich eelgrass beds make this a stopping point for many migrating birds.
