    If you see a sign like this it will let you know that one of the Kodiak Brown Bears have been in the area!! These signs are not meant to scare you but only warn you that there are possibilties of crossing paths with one. If you do follow the rules of Bear Country!!
    Don't Run....Give it plenty of room....hope like heck he's not hungry!! Just kidding about the hungry part!! LOL They aren't looking to eat humans! They are more interested in Salmon and Berries!! But they will attack if they feel threatened! The very dangerous situation is getting between a sow and her cubs!!

    Unpaved roads

    For the first 19 miles out of town you will have paved roads but for the rest of the way you will encounter unpaved gravel roads. You can also encounter many pot holes in the road especially if we have been having alot of rain. The road maintanence is kept quite well but just beware that there can be plent of the pot holes and the gravel roads can be quite damaging to car and truck tires!! I've had many flat tires over the years of driving these roads!

    Watch for falling rock on Kalsin Hill

    by herzog63 Written Sep 8, 2003

    As you come to Kalsin Hill either coming or going you will see this warning sign. Take notice as I've seen some Huge boulders laying in the middle of the road that have broken off from the cliff and fallen down!! If the timing was wrong one of these boulders could ruin your day!!! I don't have a photo of one of the boulders but if I see one someday I'll take a photo to post here.

    Don't get stuck on the other side of the river

    If you are camping at the mouth of the Olds River which is a great spot!! Be careful about getting stuck on the other side of the river if you are playing in the water or have crossed using chest waders at low tide as the river gets very deep as the tide comes in and you will have go for a long walk to find a suitable area for crossing!
    This is a shot of the beautiful cresent shaped Kasin Beach. The Olds River is at the end of the beach near the upper center of the photo.

    Don't fish where the river is closed!!

    by herzog63 Written Sep 7, 2003

    From August 1st to September 15th all of the road system rivers are closed for fishing from the first bridge and upstream of that point to allow the salmon to escape and reproduce. This allows for healthy returns year after year. Every year I notice names listed in our local newspaper from all over the United States and the world that have been caught by the Law Enforcement for fishing these closed waters. The fines are generally $75 for the first offence!!! So look for posted signs and if you're not sure ask a local!! It will be cheaper!! LOL
