An interesting walkabout...

from Chignik Bay was undertaken this afternoon, following an aging water pipe from an alpine lake to a cannery, attracting the most intrepid hikers in group:
We rapidly ascended poorly maintained ladders, many with rotten rungs and missing nails:
The view of the village was fleeting, as we were hidden in the alders along the primitive route:
Consequently, we made a lot of noise during our trek, and for good reason:

Yes, a grizzly bear had been sighted just days before, but fortunately we returned to the ship with the same number of passengers that we left with.
