Isolated Settlements at the Ends of the Earth

UrbanGhosts has a series of fascinating photographs and the stories behind some of the most isolated settlements humans have inhabited. Pictured is the village of Ukivok, Alaska.

The abandoned village of Ukivok clings precariously to the edge of a cliff in one of the most bleak and inhospitable corners of the world. Located on King Island in the Bering Sea, Ukivok became abandoned around 1970 when the last settlers moved to the Alaskan mainland. The island, forty miles west of Cape Douglas, was once the winter home of around 200 Inupiat people.
