Kaleghta Point
« on: December 28, 2012, 02:25:44 pm »
Hope this is the right thread. Anyone come across Kaleghta Point yet? It's near Ounalas(h)ka    (I'm feeling a bit guilty about not getting lots of stuff into Kathy's database. So NY resolution - nip back through PhIII and get filling it out)
TVM,
J

Bing search gave me this: Full text of "Directory for Behring's Sea and coast of Alaska ...


Quote
There are many deep bays on the coasts of Ounalashka, which have
nearly all been examined and surveyed by our navigators. The north-
ern shore has the greatest number, as for example: Captain's Bay, the
Bay of Otters, lUuluck Bay, Kaleghta Bay, and Samganooda Bay, vis-
ited by Cook.

Captain's Bay was so named, because Captain Levacheff was obliged
to winter here in 1708-'09. There is a plan of this bay, on a large scale,
in the atlas accompanying Kotzebue's voyage. It is formed by Capes
Kaleghta and WessiloHi'sky,
which lie in an east-northeast and west-
southwest direction, nine miles from each other, and is about thirteen
miles to its southern part. The upper part of the bay contains three
distinct smaller bays, the. eastern, northern, and western bays.

But I can't find it labeled on any of our maps
