This is a map of Alaska. The red box surrounds "Unimak Island" where I spent a year with the US Coast Guard. Unimak Island is known for its extreme weather, active volcanoes, huge waves, and amazing wildlife. You can only get there by chartering a private plane or helicopter. There is no normal route to Cape Sarichef, and the former Coast Guard LORAN A station is now dismantled, and is no longer needed due to more modern techniques for navigation systems, ie "GPS."
