Visitors come to Kodiak to experience a wildness that is unmatched in few places on the earth. They come to step away from civilization and rediscover nature in its purest, unruined form. It is a place to slow down to the tempo and timbre of wilderness, to appreciate silence broken only by the eagle or loon. It is a place to rest weary eyes and quiet nerves with the motion of water and color of trees. And it is a place where the designs of man yield completely to the demands of the environment.
