The panorama of sea, island, and mountain, which holds Sitka, Alaska, as a jewel in its setting, is one of the maximum stunning of these which surround the towns of the arena. Toward the sea from the peninsula on which Sitka is located stretches an expanse of waters, studded with wooded area-clad islands which damage the swell of the Pacific that foams and tumbles on the outer barriers. To the westward Mount Edgecumbe lifts its best cone, its summit truncated by using the vintage crater whose fires have been lifeless for centuries; to the northward Harbor peak lifts its signal to mariners; the Sisters, with a gleam of snow and ice among their pinnacles, lie within the distance of Indian River; to the east is the arrowhead of Mount Verstovia; the glaciers glisten past; and the sweep of mist-clad mountains, in their softness, beyond the bay to the southeast completes the circle.

Radiating just like the spokes of a wheel, waterways with historical memories reach out from the city. Krestof Bay, where the early navigators solid anchor; Neva Strait, commemorating the first Russian ship that visited Sitka from around the arena; Katleanski Bay, on which changed into situated Old Sitka; Silver Bay, a Norwegian fjord transplanted to Alaska; Lisianski Bay, named for the Russian navigator of a century ago; the inlet at Ozerskoe Redoubt and Globokoe (Deep) Lake; the island-studded way to the Hot Springs; every with its person charm; the sea, with the deep, rich, marine tints of northern waters; the forest of blue, that folds like a robe over the mountains; the mountain summits beside the glaciers, clad within the exquisitely high-quality inexperienced of the Northland, all are delightful.
