Mt. Edgecumbe (Merrill View)

This is approximately the location that a photograph was taken by E. W. Merrill in the early 1900s. I was going from memory at the time and intend to get a copy of Merrill's print to line things up more closely. The view has changed a great deal in the last 75-100 years. Both the skyline and shoreline have been radically altered as Sitka grew throughout the 20th century.

Location: Lincoln Street Beach, near Sitka, Alaska

Previous: Morning Mist
Next: Sitka Memorial Park
