... which fined up nicely in the afternoon.

Plenty of Salmon spawning here and we seen plenty making there way up the rushing streams. Alas after spawning they die so lots of dead fish around giving off odour.

The town is on reclaimed land and trestles. All food other than fish is transported in, which can take 3-4 weeks. Two large canneries producing over a million cans ...

... so funny knowing the circumstances and how weird we felt! But we want to try to take better ones on our ship and actually purchase them. We just weren't ready for these.

There was one bear who would catch a fish then go into the cave to eat it. Then after he left, we saw another bear go in and come out with fish scrapes. The bears get really close, ...

... here was Misty Fjords and wilderness excursion by boat. No guarantees on wildlife. There were very few of us on this tour, which was great! We were able to talk personally with the crew and naturalist and Native Interpreter on board. The part of the fjord were were going to is 55 miles from Ketchikan, so this boat moved fast! This was the only time Glenn and I used our toques. Yesterday at Glacier Bay , many of the passengers ...
