Dutch Harbor

If you watch the popular television show "Deadliest Catch" you may be familiar with Dutch Harbor.  During my time on the Ironwood, Dutch Harbor was almost like a second homeport to us.  Some times I felt like we spent more time there than in Kodiak.  I've seen pictures today and while a lot still looks the same to me there does appear to be some big differences too.  I hope the view will enjoy some of my pictures of Dutch Harbor and Unalaska as they were in the mid 80s.  Additionally, I have included a gallery of my best Dutch Harbor/Unalaska shots. You can view it by clicking HERE.  There really wasn't a lot to do in Dutch Harbor in those days other than taking a hike, going to church or going to a bar.  I generally liked to take a hike to a bar (bypassing all churches).  Check out my thoughts on Dutch Harbor bars of the mid 80's by clicking HERE.

The photo above is my attempt at creating a panoramic view of Dutch Harbor and Unalaska.
