Spruce Cape Sunrise #2

A beautiful sunrise at Spruce Cape on Kodiak Island, Alaska. Joseph Classen.

Spruce Cape, located on Kodiak Island, Alaska, is known for getting some of the most ferocious winds and extreme weather that makes its way across the island. When a storm rolls in, Spruce Cape is mean and nasty! Perhaps this is why the Navy Seals Cold Weather Warfare Training Center is located there. It’s the place to be if you’re looking for a severe beating from Mother Nature! The exact location where I took this photograph from is not exactly off the beaten path though. It’s an area on the outskirts of the city of Kodiak, right behind a dumpster, in fact! It just goes to show that sometimes the greatest beauty can be found in the not-so-prettiest places!
