In 73 there wss a rope on the other side of the notch in the cliff. Take the rope down to the other side and there were hot springs right on the beach. We camped there and built a hugh bonfire.

I don't know if it was officially named but we called it Horseshoe Bay. And that is the Bearing Sea.

Was on ADAK 93-96, worked in the power plant, to this day I still miss it. Would love to go back. But from the pictures on line it seems the best days of this once great place are only in memory.

Everyone that has ever been to Adak has this picture of Horseshoe Bay. Not seen due to clouds is Kanaga the second most perfectly formed Volcano in the world the first being Mt. Fuji.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the Coast Guard had a Loran post there , manned by just several guys, who would come to our ptarmigan club(one living room size place with a bar in it) for R&R!!!!!!
