Today Jamestown Bay was fogbound for most of the day as was most of Sitka to the seaward. I got in the car and drove into Silver Bay, a long fjord that cuts into the island’s mountains. When I got past the dense fog I found the most incredible blue sky and sea with patterns of clouds writing across the sky and patches of fog playing tag with the mountain tops and fishing boats. As the fog began to fill the fjord I drove up the road to the Blue lake Dam, the road above the dam is probably about 500 feet above sea level, and saw the sky again. I drove down the mountain into the fog and home.
And while I am at it, here are some photos from Silver Bay the day before, at ground level, showing that fall is approaching. These pics inspired the next blog post.
