Alaska’s Natural Submarines.
The channels of the Alaskan water
ways vary as you sail on to the north
ward. Now they widen into great
lakes; now they are rivers as narrow
as the Hudson or Rhine. At times you
pass through gorges walled by islands
and t he mainland, and at times you are
in fiords like those formed by the half
sunken Andes along western Patago
nia, near the strait of Magellan. This
part of our territory is made lip of the
heads of submerged mountains, and in
places there are great rocks as steep,
as high and as sharp as the Washing
ton monument, which come within
twenty or thirty feet of the surface.
These are terrible pinnacle rocks that
rip open the hulls of the steamers.
They are searched for and marked
with buoys by the wire drag of our
coast and geodetic survey.—Christian
