Kodiak population is approximately 8,000 and is the largest community on Kodiak Island. The road system is centered around Kodiak and the NE corner of Kodiak Island. The roads are not connected to the outlying villages that are on the west, south and eastern part of Kodiak Island. While the villages of Kodiak Island are very isolated, Kodiak is also isolated. The average rainfall for Kodiak is about 75 inches a year. Winter storms rage with winds that can reach over 100 mph. With the rain, snow and storms, Kodiak's connection to the world by air ceases. As the summer months near, weather improves and salmon fishing boat activity picks up at the Kodiak harbor. Also, in port, in this image -- an Alaskan ferry that connects Kodiak to mainland Alaska.
