    Fossil Beach and purple lupine

    Beyond the Pasagshak Recreation Area at the limit of the road is the so-called Fossil Beach, where old shells can often be found in the crumbling cliffs surrounding the area. This is a rugged zone, facing directly into the Gulf of Alaska, so the beach will blaze by day in the summer, but often sift under relentless gales by night. Whitecap waves in the sea and purple waves of lupine to the rear frame this isolated retreat, just another of hundreds of such beaches on this incredible island.

    Not a Paradise for Hikers

    Hiking in the Pasagshak Area is not recommended for people with limited skills, little bear experience and those with limited time. The surrounding vicinity is crisscrossed with a variety of dales and valleys, all of which are choked with Kodiak's overwhelming vegetation, especially the alder and its numerous varieties. Certain paths exist where hunters and local fishermen have minimized the hardships of hiking into the interior, but the course is still not for the faint of heart or the armchair hiker. Have a guide with you or unlimited options in case you make the attempt.
